RGD Partner Spoke at HKIAC Event on Validity of Arbitration Agreements

Dmitry Kaysin, Partner at Resolution Practice at Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners law firm (RGD), joined a panel discussion titled Validity of the Arbitration Agreement: Risks and Benefits of Contracting with SOEs.


The event was held by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre during the Vis East Week, timed to coincide with the 20th Vis East Moot Competition, the sister competition to the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna. It provides law students, academics, and professionals with a similar exposure to, and experience in, international arbitration and trade law as the Vis Moot in Vienna, but with an Asian context.


Dmitry Kaysin shared his ample pre-arbitration and arbitration experience in the CIS, specifically in Russia and Kazakhstan. Mariel Dimsey, Secretary General at HKIAC, Tim Robbins, Independent Arbitrator, and Yan Zhang, Partner at Sidley Austin, took part in the discussion. The speakers shared their expertise on arbitration proceedings involving SOEs in various countries.
