Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

Whatever sector you are in, and wherever you operate or invest, at some point you could be involved in a dispute. We can provide you with legal representation that is professional, practical and cost-effective.

We cover a wide range of commercial disputes, including in relation to sale of goods, loans, works and EPC contracts, disputes arising from M&A transactions and corporate relationships, as well as from investments in Russia and abroad.

We represent clients in disputes in various industries, including construction and infrastructure, transportation, energy, oil and gas, mining, financial services, and IT.

We have broad experience representing clients in Russian and foreign courts, as well as in leading Russian and foreign arbitration centres. Clients come to us from Russia and abroad for advice and representation in the disputes related to contracts governed by both Russian and non-Russian (most often English) law.

We handle disputes arising from disruption of contracts between Russian and foreign parties due to sanctions. We also advise and represent Russian clients in disputes (investment arbitration) with foreign States that have violated investors’ rights, and cover cases involving debt collection and bankruptcy.

We routinely draw on the firm’s outstanding corporate, finance and infrastructure groups. They know how Russian and CIS transactions are structured and regulated, how they differ from deal structures elsewhere, and the issues that can arise down the road.

We represent our clients’ interests in:

  • court proceedings in Russia and abroad, including in commercial and corporate disputes;
  • international commercial arbitration (including in arbitration centres in Russia and abroad);
  • domestic arbitration in Russia;
  • investment disputes (arbitration);
  • recognition and enforcement of judgments and arbitration awards in Russia and abroad;
  • bankruptcy cases in Russia and abroad.
