Conference Russian Arbitration Day 2022
“Once again, the Russian Arbitration Day presented participants with an exceptionally high level of discussion, on topics that are changing the face of arbitration practice not only in Russia but around the world. Again, the speakers were from a wide range of backgrounds, but shared a serious and thorough approach to their topics. And again I was honored to take part”.

“The second Russian Arbitration Day which took place in May 2014 consolidated on the success of the first one and is arguably now the leading annual arbitration event in Russia. In-house and private practice lawyers who attended praised the organisers for putting together panels of internationally recognised arbitration experts whose topical presentations were of great value on both a practical and a theoretical level”.

“The Russian Arbitration Day is a great platform for young talented lawyers to take part and make their contribution to the development of the international arbitration. This is an event where one may discuss and share his/her bravest ideas, receive feedback, ask questions and debate the most complex issues. I am looking forward to the event next year!”

“Dear friends, we are finalizing our annual event, Russian Arbitration Day, which has already become common enough to turn into a tradition. On behalf of conference organizers, I would like to thank the hosting parties: the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the International Commercial Arbitration Court represented by Aleksey A. Kostin and Vadim V. Chubarov who not only made the today’s forum possible, but also spoke on the arbitration reform. Our sponsoring partners deserve a special thank you: law firms Muranov, Chernyakov & Partners, Berwin Leighton Paisner, Haberman Ilett. Lawyers practicing at these firms delivered excellent reports on quite intriguing topics of international commercial arbitration. Our event is a professional initiative of the legal practitioners within the arbitration community, which is why we debate on hot topical and highly relevant issues triggered by current market changes and even the prevailing political agenda. For instance, today we have listened to a most interesting talk on how sanctions imposed on Russia and its retaliation measures may nearly shake the foundations of arbitration. We would like to express our gratitude to the conference initiators’, and in particular, Roman M. Khodykin, Partner at Berwin Leighton Paisner, owing to whom this event has become the most authoritative one for representatives of international arbitration community. Like no other event, our forum can boast the involvement of the biggest number of renowned foreign experts, which contributes to the most fruitful and vivid discussions during sessions and on the sidelines of the conference. Our event has drawn to a close and we are expecting you to join us again next year.”

“I was privileged to present reports during the first two Russian Arbitration Days (in 2013 and 2014). Young lawyers always have to struggle to obtain an opportunity to speak at a profiled conference; however, specifically in the area of international arbitration such presentations are vital for establishing one’s name and reputation among the legal profession. The same is true for publications. I was extremely lucky that at the time when I chose to concentrate in my professional activities almost exclusively on international arbitration, the organizers recognized my reports to be worthy of inclusion in the conference program. It allowed me to establish myself as a specialist in this sphere of legal work.

“I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to both the organizers and participants of such an amazing event! A first-class event by all standards, starting from excellent coffee to exciting and trending topics presented by speakers. Attending such events is not only highly satisfying in terms of the amount of useful information gained, but it is a wholly separate aesthetical pleasure as well. Many thanks to the whole team of participants for one of the most prominent events of the year!”

“The event was staged at an exceptionally high organizational level, and of course special thanks to speakers and moderators, the whole experience was truly exciting and extremely educational. The very fact that a big part of the audience was made up of people from various regions speaks for itself”.

“In my purely subjective perspective, it is critically important for each lawyer to combine practical experience with a deeply thought through doctrinal theoretical base. And RAD is exactly where these two factors intertwine harmoniously. At the conference, a deep analytical insight into causes, trends and the general development vector comes hand in hand with a prompt response to currently unfolding processes; typically, many of the issues raised by speakers have already occurred or tend to occur in the real life mode soon after the event, and there is a chance to use the information obtained to benefit both our clients and business.

“Russian Arbitration Day is a one-of-a-kind scientific and legal conference allowing young enthusiasts of arbitration to speak on the same floor with the most notorious members of the profession. At the same time, the selection criteria applied are so highly competitive that the content and the number of talks by “rising stars” are totally comparable to those delivered by internationally acclaimed legal scientists. For many lawyers, Russian Arbitration Day has become their first public stage of such a scope. Some of them, following their brilliant performance at the conference, were offered to become employed with leading dispute resolution practices, get engaged in reforming Russian arbitration laws and even to represent Russia in international arbitral tribunals”.

“RAD is a first-class forum where young legal practitioners enjoy the opportunity to speak together with top-ranking experts of global standing not only on current issues, but also on deeply studied theoretical topics. I participated in RAD for two consecutive years, and both became landmark events for me. In the first year, it allowed me to speak in Russian on the topic of my master’s paper, which I prepared in the course of my MIDS studies in Geneva and published in the Journal of International Arbitration. It is inspirational that RAD standards and, in particular, those applied by Anton Asoskov, who moderated my session, fully meet best international practices. The second year proved that speaking at the conference may open new career prospects and generate exciting job offers.
