Lidings presents “Doing Business in Russia” at the Shanghai Bar Association

Head of dispute resolution practice at Lidings Andrey Zelenin and senior associate in the corporate and M&A practice Vadim Konyushkevich presented “Doing Business in Russia” seminar at the Shanghai Bar Association highlighting all principal aspects of legal regulation applicable to foreign investments in the country. Lidings became the first Russian law firm ever to receive presentation approval by the SBA and the Foreign Affairs Office.

At the seminar Vadim Konyushkevich touched upon the main amendments to the Russian Civil Code which will directly affect foreign businesses considering investments in the country or expanding their presence in the market. Andrey Zelenin outlined the structure of Russian judicial system and addressed the topic of Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization, touching upon key aspects of the process and its potential impact on local and international businesses.

“Together with our Chinese partners we are observing with great satisfaction the fruitful development of trade and economic relations between Russia and China. We were thrilled at the opportunity to address the lack of information about our investment climate and our legislation in China, and we certainly did our best in partnership with the Shanghai Bar Association to promote and explain the best practice of doing business in Russia”, commented Andrey Zelenin.

“Lidings has extensive experience in advising leading Chinese companies. Our Asia-Pacific practice has developed greatly over the course of the last seven years. Given the opportunity to address Chinese legal community we will make the next step in expanding collaboration between our countries and the next level of growth and prosperity for our businesses”, added Vadim Konyushkevich.

Shanghai Bar Association was established in accordance with the Law of the People's Republic of China on Lawyers and under the direction and supervision of the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Justice. It is a social organization for all the Shanghai lawyers and law firms. For more information please visit the SBA website.
