Newsletter Russian Desk, Litigation, September 2019

Dear readers,

On 9 July 2019 the Supreme Court issued Decree No. 24 of the Plenum which considered general and special issues that arise when establishing law applicable to civil matters with a cross-border impact.

The Decree cites a significant number of examples which are useful in contractual work when parties select the form of the transaction, and also when they choose the law applicable to the contractual obligations.

In addition, some provisions in the Decree are of practical significance for supply contracts, as they determine the scope of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods of 1980 (hereinafter the “CISG”).

A number of clarifications are also of key significance for dispute resolution, as they concern disputes involving consumers, corporate disputes and disputes arising from unjust enrichment.

This newsletter will be of interest to CEOs and the specialists of legal departments.

Alexander Bezborodov
