Aceris Law’s Russia Arbitration Lawyers Desk is a dedicated team of lawyers at Aceris Law, a specialised international arbitration law firm, which accompanies clients involved in arbitrations concerning Russia, i.e., where Russian law applies, a contract is executed in Russia, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Russia, or the Russian State or a Russian State entity is involved.
Aceris Law’s Harvard, Oxford and Sorbonne trained lawyers are admitted to bars of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and North America and have significant prior experience dealing with commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitrations under the ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, LCIA, SCC, SIAC, ICDR, VIAC and other arbitration rules, many of which have concerned Russia and neighbouring States.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Moscow to meet and work with clients, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Russia Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Russian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking Russian and English.
Our Russia Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Russian lawyers, who are involved depending on the specific needs of a given arbitration. This ensures that our clients obtain the best arbitration legal representation while also maintaining cost-effectiveness for arbitrations involving Russia.
