International Arbitration

Our international commercial arbitration practice is focused on complex cross-border disputes and is one of the most dynamic.

We represent interests of large Russian and transnational corporations in arbitration proceedings administered by all widely recognized international arbitration institutions.

Our track record includes representation of interests under all major arbitration rules administered by the following institutions:

  • ICC – the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce, Paris     
  • LCIA – the London Court of International Arbitration
  • SCC – the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce
  • SCAI – Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution
  • ICAC – International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, Moscow, as well as ad hoc arbitrations under UNCITRAL Rules administered by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in Hague.

On quite frequent occasions when involvement of a financial or technical experts is required, as well as specialists in laws of foreign jurisdictions, we draw on from our wide network of partners and various contacts among experts and lawyers in Russia and abroad.

Our main goals while working on a matter is to procure fast and cost-efficient proceedings as well as ensure enforcement of final awards. Prior to, or simultaneously with commencement of our arbitration engagement we, subject to the client’s approval and in collaboration with specialist firms, arrange tracing of opponents’ assets and take other steps to comprehensively assess the probability of recovery.

In support of proceedings in international commercial arbitration we routinely have recourse to courts in various jurisdictions to get all types of injunctions, obtain evidence or provide other kinds of assistance to prospective or ongoing arbitration.

The firm also has successful practice in setting aside of arbitral awards and in recognition and enforcement of awards in Russia and abroad.
