Nato Tskhakaya, Partner and Head of Regulatory Practice at the Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners (RGD) law firm, was invited to lecture at the Russian Foreign Trade Academy (RFTA) to teach an eight-session course to students.

The program provides a comprehensive understanding of the regulation of international economic activities. A heavy emphasis is placed on practice: all lecturers are hands-on professionals and leading experts in their respective fields.

Nato’s lectures introduce students to the main types of compliance, its tasks and functions, and also cover the basics of anti-corruption, banking, antitrust and sanctions compliance.
