Lidings sponsors In-house Counsel Day hosted by AEB

Lidings acted as premier sponsor of In-house Counsel Day hosted by the Association of European Businesses. The event, initiated with support of AEB’s Legal Committee, was held at the Metropol Hotel in Moscow on 22 November 2013.

The initiative brought together leading representatives of the legal profession providing them with an excellent opportunity to communicate informally and share expertise with colleagues across different industrial sectors.

The speakers touched upon a number of vital topics with particular focus on corporate ethics and compliance, interaction with regulators and their role in company business processes, and management of legal department. The final session of the meeting was devoted to claim and litigation management. Speakers included heads of legal departments of ALSTOM, Siemens, Novo Nordisk, ABB, Peugeot Citroen, BASF and other major companies represented in Russia. Senior associate of dispute resolution practice at Lidings Sergey Popelyuk made a presentation on changes in the court practice with regards to disputes with foreigners and information letter No. 158 of the Supreme Commercial Court.

"AEB’s initiative allows for a perfect opportunity to implement fundamental principle of the relationship between business and its legal advisors, which is the need for a deep understanding of the company’s commercial  specifics that lawyers must possess together with a clear picture of the current business demands", commented Alexander Popelyuk. - "In-house lawyers receive this information directly from their business units, and it is extremely important for us as external consultants that this knowledge is shared. That is why my colleagues and I have found today's meeting with the heads of legal departments not only enjoyable, but also very useful in terms of exchange of relevant information on current projects that will help us understand where our support might be needed most".

The Association of European Businesses, a nonprofit organization founded in 1995, represents and promotes the interests of European companies conducting business in and with the Russian Federation.
