For the first time ever young arbitration practitioners came together for an informal networking event organized by Arbitration Association 40 and kindly supported by ICC YAF, ICDR Y&I and LCIA YIAG. The event ttracted over sixty guests, including in-house counsel and private practice lawyers from junior to partner level based In Moscow and abroad.
This event provided a rare opportunity for young arbitration practitioners to share their ideas and aspirations with senior colleagues in informal atmosphere as well as to get an insider’s look at the Moscow arbitration community.
Another reason to meet up at the very end of the year was to sum up the results of 2014 and to present the Arbitration Association 40 Awards. We appreciate that the idea of Arbitration Association 40 Awards being oĭand has been realized within a very short period of time and thank all of you for your very active support and cooperation. On our side we learnt a lot and will take these lessons into consideration next year.
