Many thanks to Markus Perkams and all at Skadden Arps who hosted RCAN’s inaugural event in Germany.

The event organised in cooperation with DIS-40 (the German Young Arbitration Practitioner Group) was held in Frankfurt, and consisted of a panel discussion concerning:

(i) the practical importance of arbitration for the resolution of disputes between German and Russian companies;

(ii) the legal framework of arbitration in Russia, including enforcement of awards; and

(iii) crucial issues of Russian-related arbitrations from the perspective of an arbitral institution.

The panel was followed by an informal drinks reception.
