The Managing Partner of AGP Andrey Gorodissky took part in the XI annual business Legal Forum of Russia, acting as the moderator of the session “Status of arbitrator – an alternative to the law career or a supplement thereto?»

Topics discussed in this session concerned practicing lawyers’ activities as arbitrators of arbitral tribunals, including international commercial arbitration courts in Russia and other countries. Participants shared their experience and opinions on a number of issues, specifically they discussed: whether the career in arbitration is an alternative to the law career or a supplement thereto; how the status of an arbitrator helps the practicing lawyer’s career or is such status the summit of practicing lawyer’s career; what merits, experience, and expertise should the arbitrator have; and whether the arbitration caterer is reserved to veterans of the law only, or younger lawyers can also engage in such activity.
