Dmitry Kaysin, Partner at the Dispute Resolution Practice at Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin & Partners, took part in the Moscow State Academy of Law round table dedicated to in-person and online communication in civil litigation held as a part of the Priority 2030 strategic academic leadership program.
The round table brought together representatives of the judiciary, trial lawyers, experts in legal psychology and academic society who exchanged opinions and recommendations on a wide range of topical issues. As a result of the event, participants issued a joint memorandum with suggestions and recommendations for modernizing judicial procedures in terms of communications, rulemaking and technological solutions for organizing remote meetings.
During the event, Dmitry Kaisin shared his experience in conducting international arbitration proceedings in a hybrid format. He discussed how various digital solutions for online hearings that have proved effective in recent years are being used in international practice.
Dmitry noted that arbitrators and parties are gradually returning to classical format, however, to meet the current needs of all actors, online hearings are still held more often today. The key drivers of this trend are the desire to reduce arbitration costs, global environmental concerns promoted by the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations and the fact that arbitration lawyers have been able to adapt to online cross-examinations.
