London Counsel Joins Russian Arbitration Association 40 (RAA40) Sanctions & Arbitration Seminar

October 31, 2014

International sanctions levied against Russia have caused much confusion for businesses. London Counsel Maria Gritsenko recently attended the RAA40 Sanctions & Arbitration Seminar and was a speaker on sanctions, force majeure and frustration of contracts under English law.

The seminar, which took place Oct. 28 in Moscow, focused on the consequences of the sanctions prohibiting a party from performing a contract in whole or in part from the English, Russian and transnational law perspectives. The event also addressed issues that arise due to application of the sanctions in international context, such as choice of applicable law and application of mandatory rules by arbitral tribunals.

Gritsenko focuses her practice in commercial litigation and international arbitration. She has extensive international experience having spent several years with leading dispute resolution practices in London, Paris and Washington, D.C.
