Sweden is recognized globally for its neutrality, transparency and consistent adherence to the rule of law. Swedish law has provided a neutral, predictable and cost-effective foundation for international trade and commerce. In particular, the choice of Swedish law has been and continues to be common in international contracts involving Russian parties. Over the years, a large number of Russia-related contracts have been governed by Swedish law, including major and pioneering commercial transactions. As a result, many Russian legal practitioners have become exposed to Swedish law and developed ties with their Swedish counterparts.
Following the success of the inaugural Swedish Law Day in 2018, the second annual Swedish Law Day aims to build on and expand the ties between the Swedish and Russian legal community by creating a platform for an open exchange of ideas and experiences. The program features renowned legal practitioners from both Sweden and Russia and high-profile panel discussion, presentations and a workshop highlighting important and topical Swedish commercial law issues. Swedish Law Day is a must-attend conference for Russian legal practitioners who want to get a better understanding of Swedish commercial law and network with their Swedish counterparts.
SPEAKERS INCLUDE Lise Alm, Ilya Nikiforov, Robin Oldenstam, Carl Hugo Parment, Ulf Hårdeman, Fredrik Norburg, Ginta Ahrel, David Ackebo, Cecilia Möller Norsted, Johan Sidklev.
