International Oil and Gas Industry Disputes
June 20, 2019

This article gives an outline of the kinds of disputes that arise in the international oil and gas industry. The subject is potentially encyclopaedic in scope, so for an article of this kind I have had to be selective. My aim has been to give practitioners in Russia whose main focus is on general commercial practice (who have limited familiarity with activities of the international oil and gas industry), with a general overview of those aspects of the international oil and gas industry where a general practitioner might not be aware of particular issues that commonly arise in the legal affairs of the industry or where the practice of the international industry is materially different from that in Russia.

France: arbitration legislation and cases
April 4, 2019

France has enacted a new statute named “Justice of the 21st Century,” reforming many provisions of French legislation, among which a redrafting of the provisions of Article 2061 of the French Civil Code which defines the regime applicable to the validity and enforceability of arbitration clauses in the domestic legal order. The reform has introduced two main changes related to (i) the notion of acceptance of arbitration clauses and (ii) the unenforceability of arbitration clauses against consumers.
