In his speech, Pepeliaev Group partner Yuri Vorobyev talked about disputes Chinese companies had encountered with Russian business partners. Yuri compared dispute resolution in the Russian state courts and in other arbitral tribunals, most notably the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Russian Federation Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He also explained how decisions of Chinese state courts and arbitral bodies can be enforced in Russia.
