From transparency to secrecy: ramifications for dispute resolution and investigations in Russia and abroad


Following numerous high-profile corporate leaks, from the Panama Papers to the so-called Troika Laundromat, Russia is applying greater restrictions to its public record information – bucking the global trend for transparency.

Investigators and legal counsel operating in Russia will need to consider the consequences of a more secretive Russia if they want to pursue successful recovery and enforcement, locally and abroad.

On 15 June 2021 Raedas hosted a webinar where the practical implications following increased public record restrictions in Russia were reviewed. Our panel of Russia experts – Raedas Associate Directors Matthew Walker and Tobias Vollmer,  Candey Partner Ben Wells,  Carey Olson Associate Izabella Prusskaya and Journalist Anastasia Stognei discussed:

  • How to gather lawful evidence to support litigation and arbitration in Russia
  • The practical mechanisms for recovery and tracing assets
  • Adjusting investigations, enforcement strategies and insolvency remedies both inside and outside of Russia
  • Collection of information in the BVI and its use by courts and arbitration tribunals in the Russian Federation.
