Legal Protection for Russian Business Abroad

Congress Centre, conference hall D1
Business and Investment in the Face of Sanctions
A host of unfavourable macroconditions have been created for Russian businesses abroad. This state of affairs requires appropriate solutions, both in terms of legal protection, and possible government support. Russian entrepreneurs operating in other countries have seen their rights violated and business freedoms restricted. A number of countries have also taken political decisions which disregard established legal boundaries. Russophobia has not only affected ordinary citizens, but the business community too. What’s more, it has had an impact on choice of jurisdiction. What forms of legal protection do Russian entrepreneurs have recourse to? What legal issues will Russian entrepreneurs have to deal with in the near future? How will the current situation affect national jurisdictions?
