Welcome to the first Swedish Law Day in Russia

Welcome to the first Swedish Law Day in Russia

On 23 Oct 2018 in Moscow, SCC is co-organising a conference that aims to build on and expand the ties between the Swedish and Russian legal community by creating a platform for an open exchange of ideas and experiences. SCC Chairperson and Professor Kaj Hobér will be one of the speakers.

Sweden is recognised globally for its neutrality, transparency and consistent adherence to the rule of law. Swedish law has provided a neutral, predictable and cost-effective foundation for international trade and commerce.
Over the years a large number of Russia-related contracts have been governed by Swedish law. As a result, many Russian legal practitioners have become exposed to Swedish law and developed ties with their Swedish counterparts.

Swedish Law Day is organised by the Swedish Arbitration Association, Young Arbitrators Sweden, the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce as well as a number of the leading Swedish business law firms. Swedish Law Day is a must-attend conference for Russian legal practitioners who want to get a better understanding of Swedish commercial law and network with their Swedish counterparts.

The programme features:
• renowned legal practitioners from both Sweden and Russia,
• high profile panel discussions,
• presentations and mock arbitral proceedings highlighting important and topical Swedish commercial law issues.

Speakers will include: Professor Kaj Hobér, James Hope, Professor Alexander Komarov, Kristoffer Löf, Bo GH Nilsson, Polina Permyakova, Professor Christina Ramberg, Fredrik Ringquist, Per Runeland, Pontus Scherp, Rikard Wikström-Hermansen, Roman Zykov and Anna-Maria Tamminen.

 

The conference will be held in English. The event is free of charge.

To secure a place at the seminar we recommend that you register early as the number of seats is limited. All registrations will be handled on a “first come – first served” basis.

SEMINAR ON ENERGY DISPUTES: INVESTMENT PROTECTION V ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS

SEMINAR ON ENERGY DISPUTES: INVESTMENT PROTECTION V ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS

On 30 October, in connection to the Hong Kong Arbitration Week, the SCC and Shearman & Sterling invites to a seminar discussing investment protection and environmental considerations within the energy sector. Speakers will include SCC Board Members Dmitri Evseev and Jakob Ragnwaldh and SCC Legal Counsel Natalia Petrik.

The SCC regurlarly administers energy disputes arising from the contracts and treaties, including bilateral investment treaties and the Energy Charter Treaty. These disputes are often caracterised by a very complex interplay between the standards of investment protection and environmental considerations at issue. To address this, the SCC has established the Stockholm Treaty Lab competition encouraging the research of the ways to ensure investment in climate change mitigation and adaptation via international treaties. This seminar represents another attempt to draw the public interest to these interesting and necessary questions.  

The speakers will include SCC Board members Jakob Ragnwaldh (Mannheimer Swartling), Dmitri Evseev (Arnold & Porter), as well as Nils Eliasson and Emmanuel Jacomy (Sherman & Sterling).
