Outer Temple at St Petersburg International Legal Forum 2016

Outer Temple Chambers is pleased to announce that it will play a significant role in the St Petersburg International Legal Forum which is being held between 18 and 21 May 2016 in Russia.

The initiative is spearheaded by Alexey Karpenko, an Outer Temple Professional Associate, who is the senior partner at Forward Legal, in Moscow.

Joint Heads of Chambers, Michael Bowes QC and Andrew Spink QC, together with David Russell QC, Fiona Scolding and Miranda de Savorgnani will give talks on Trusts, Regulation of Company Groups, International Tax rules, Public Procurement, Banking Regulation and International Arbitration to an audience of Russian government representatives, the judiciary, international organisations, General Counsel of Russian corporations and the international media.

The official programme will cover topics as Private Law, Corporate Practice / International Trade / Competition, Litigation and Arbitration Practice, Smart Society, Investments / Finance, International law, Rule of Law, Cultural Heritage / Public Interest / Environment and Legal Profession.

Alongside the official programme, Outer Temple will be participating in several satellite legal events hosted by Russia’s RBC network, a large business media group.  The events are centred around Case studies and practical aspects of Arbitration and Litigation, and are designed to showcase the ability and expertise of the UK Bar in leading bespoke international legal projects.

This is an opportunity for Outer Temple to demonstrate its expertise at the legal heart of a jurisdiction which continues to be very taken with UK law, courts and arbitration.

Comments from participants in previous years include:

“…is a historic event for the development of law in the world.” Julio Cesar Alak, Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Argentine Republic.

“…allows meeting many people and doing much work in one place instead of going to several countries and arranging several different meetings.” Nikola Selaković, Minister of Justice of the Republic of Serbia.

“…is stimulating, informing and most interesting. And, it is certainly international in character and content.” Sidney Brooks, Judge, United States Bankruptcy Court.
