RGD Partner Speaks at English Law Day in Belgrade

On June 12, Belgrade hosted English Law Day, a platform that united legal experts, practicing lawyers, and business leaders to delve into the critical issues shaping the international law. The event’s agenda encompassed a wide range of topics, including investor-state arbitration, international commercial arbitration, combatting corruption and fraud, and the implications of sanctions.


Anthony Walker, Partner and Head of English Law Practice at Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners law firm (RGD), participated in a session on sanctions and their impact on transport, trade, transactions, and disputes. During the discussion, he spoke about the implications of sanctions for different sectors of the economy and offered some interesting insights on the topic.
