AstapovLawyers International Law Group supports the students’ team of the Faculty of Law of the Taras Shevchenko National University (Kyiv) for participation in a top international competition The Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. The debates will be held from March 31th April 5th in Vienna (Austria).

This year event will bring together 254 law school teams from 63 countries worldwide. Alexander Frolov and Ivanna Tsyba will represent Ukraine and protect the reputation of the Shevchenko National University’s Faculty of Law. Andrey Astapov, a Managing Partner at AstapovLawyers, as well as Ivan Lishchina, Company’s Senior Associate, has actively acted as an official coaches of Ukrainian students group.

During the oral hearings in Vienna Alexander Frolov and Ivanna Tsyba will meet their opponents from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany), the Yale Law School (USA), the Thammasat University (Thailand) and the FGV Sao Paulo Law School (Brazil).

Around 1500 students are members of the teams this year. The Moot will be judged by 650 lawyers and professors from around the world. Teams compete as the claimants or respondents in the hearing of the case which has been prepared beforehand by the moot’s organization committee. The competition is traditionally devoted to international commercial arbitration and private international law under the Vienna Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

The Eighteenth Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot is intended to stimulate the study of international commercial law, especially the legal texts prepared by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), and the use of international commercial arbitration to resolve international commercial disputes. The international nature of the Moot is intended to lead participants to interpret the texts of international commercial law in the light of different legal systems and to develop an expertise in advocating a position before an arbitral panel composed of arbitrators from different legal systems.

  • Top Changes for Financial Institutions on Restructuring and Recoveries Market in Ukraine

    One of the biggest fear for a creditor in providing financing is a possible default with zero perspectives to recover damages.

However, the situation has changed substantially over the past few years.

  • How much does it cost to use “proprietary” TM?

    For many international companies, it is a common practice to allow the use of their trademarks (TM) to all group companies on a free of charge basis. Some parent companies do not even have a right to charge the royalty payments from their subsidiaries, as this contradicts the company’s policy. In the case of subsidiaries located in the territory of Ukraine, such a situation suits everyone, at first glance, because royalties do not have to be paid at all.

In the whole of 2018, which has been a record-breaking year so far, numbers were almost half as high. The Ukrainian market also remains very attractive to foreign investors, not least because of the lucrative feed-in tariff rates, which are paid out regularly. Now, after the adoption of the so-called law on green auctions, significant changes can be expected.
