The Dutch-Russian Seminar on Legal Co-operation "Better Justice, Better Business"
The Hague, Netherlands (6 March 2013)
The seminar is part of a programme of events to celebrate 2013 as the "Russian-Dutch Bilateral Year" and falls under the aegis of the annual St Petersburg International Legal Forum, in which the Hague Conference has participated since its inauguration in 2011.
The Choice of Court Convention was featured at this seminar during a session dedicated to predictable and reliable dispute resolution mechanisms from the point of view of businesses.
The Convention was presented as the litigation counterpart to the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, thus providing businesses with greater legal security when selecting a venue to decide on disputes that may arise out of their commercial activities.
