“CIS disputes are not drying out. They grow in quantity, complexity, amounts involved and jurisdictions covered. They are evolving. In this regard, the program of the event very comprehensively takes into consideration the traditional issues, as well as latest trends – all relevant. The audience turns out to be blended evenly to allow east and west lawyers meet each other to exchange views and explore opportunities.”

Special mention to Anita Arthur and Anna Kolbusz for making my firm and me feel welcome to the conference, being responsive, coordinating all the logistics and for their general professional and courteous manner throughout the process. I do 2 or 3 speaking engagements each year and this has been among the most rewarding and well run programs.”
