September 14, 2017

Foley Hoag LLP counsel Ivan Urzhumov will be a featured speaker at the Kazan Legal International Legal Forum, being held in Kazan, Russia on September 14-16.

Urzhumov will take part in a roundtable discussion entitled “Investment Arbitration: Additional Opportunity to Protect Investments.” He and his fellow panelists will address topics such as investment arbitration as a mechanism to allow investors to recover damages from a foreign state; how investment arbitration works in practice; how investment arbitration differs from international commercial arbitration; what experiences Russia and CIS-based companies have in dealing with these sorts of cases; and how to enforce an ICSID award.

Urzhumov is a member of Foley Hoag’s International Arbitration and Litigation Department. He focuses his practice on international commercial and investment arbitration, as well as cross-border litigations involving asset tracing, debt recovery and fraud litigation. His practice also encompasses enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, taking of evidence abroad and obtaining conservatory measures in support of foreign proceedings.

The Kazan Legal International Legal Forum is a leading annual event for legal matters relating to doing business in Russia and CIS. It is organized by the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan in cooperation with Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners, one of the largest law firms in Russia.
