Webinar. Beating the virus: International Arbitration trends in a new world

  • Russia



    | How have COVID-related government measures influenced international arbitrations to date?

    | What should be taken into account when it comes to virtual merits hearings v. in-person merits hearings?

    | Are international arbitration rules and procedures already well-equipped to deal with the consequences of pandemics or are changes needed?

    | Will the nature of arbitration and experiences of arbitration proceedings during this pandemic make it more likely for arbitration to be chosen as a preferred dispute resolution mechanism?

    | In Russia, where litigation is dominant, will the pandemic prove to be an opportunity or a pitfall for international arbitral institutions?

    Under the auspices of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia, Eversheds Sutherland will offer its unique insight into these matters, drawing on its most recent arbitration experience.
