This year following a big interest from the audience, we have put together a new, exclusive session, where lawyers representing large and boutique firms from various jurisdictions (both on- and offshore) will share their insights and experiences from cross-border cases they have been involved in

  • Structuring relations between the client and different lawyers teams (direct contract, sub-hiring, agency, referrals, etc)
  • Distribution of liability towards the client
  • Maintaining a network of ‘best friends’, ‘preferred firms’, etc.
  • Membership in associations of law firms
  • Other sources to find the right firm in a foreign jurisdiction
  • Management of a Russia/CIS-specific case
