AstapovLawyers hosted a meeting of the UBA committee

December 2011

AstapovLawyers International Law Group hosted a regular meeting of Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution of the Ukrainian Bar Association. The meeting was held on November 24 in Kyiv office of law firm.

Participants of the event included representatives of the leading law firms, practicing lawyers, academics and graduates. The discussion was moderated by Mr. Eugene Blinov, Counsel at AstapovLawyers, and the key subject was devoted to the new Arbitration Rules of the International Chamber of Commerce. In particular, Oleg Beketov, Counsel at AstapovLawyers, made a comparative description of the previous 1998 rules and amended rules of the International Chamber of Commerce to be applied after 2012.

It should be noted, that earlier this year, Eugene Blinov, Counsel at AstapovLawyers International Law Group, was appointed as the chairman of Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution of the Ukrainian Bar Association.

Mr. Blinov highlighted the importance of this event and stated: “There is a growing competition between various arbitrations and the new ICC rules have marked a further trend in this competition. The amended ICC rules are aimed at securing the efficiency of arbitral proceedings, however some of the introduced amendments risk to become a tool for challenging arbitral awards and evading their enforcement. Anyway as ICC case law on the matter will shortly develop, time will show whether the amendments to the rules have been effective”.
