Update on the Swedish Arbitration Reform – SCC Seminar in Kiev
On 23 May, the Embassy of Sweden in Kiev, the Ukrainian Arbitration Association and the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) will jointly organize an international seminar in Kiev about the revised Swedish Arbitration Act.
On 21 November 2018, the Swedish legislature passed a revised Arbitration Act, intended to make arbitration in Sweden yet more efficient. The revision aims at making Swedish arbitration law more easily accessible, especially for non-Swedish parties, and to ensure that Stockholm continues to be an attractive venue for international dispute resolution.
During the seminar, Swedish and Ukrainian experts will introduce the audience to the legal and practical aspects of arbitration, and present the important legislative changes and new revisions modernizing the Swedish Arbitration Act that entered into effect on 1 March 2019.
Moderator will be Serhii Uvarov (Senior counsel, Integrites, Kiev and Secretary General, Ukrainian Arbitration Association) and the panelists will be Natalia Petrik (SCC Legal counsel), Christer Söderlund (Senior counsel, Morssing & Nycander, Stockholm), Ginta Ahrel (Partner, Westerberg & Partners, Stockholm) and Markiyan Kliuchkovskyi (Partner, Asters Law, Kiev).
The seminar is a must-attend event for Ukrainian legal practitioners and corporate counsel who want to learn more about the Swedish arbitration landscape.
