RGD Supports Anniversary Arbitration Conference of ICC Russia in Moscow

On December 13, the XV Annual Arbitration Conference of ICC Russia was held in Moscow, with Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners (RGD) as the major sponsor.

This year the event celebrated the 100th anniversary of the ICC International Court of Arbitration.
