Today there is legal basis for investor’s claim against a foreign state in cases of violation of individual rights (for instance, the right to property in any form, as well as the rights stipulated by intergovernmental agreements on investment protection). Such an agreement has been ratified in Russia with a number of countries. For investors whose rights have been violated or infringed, the Russian arbitration courts are a real alternative to the arbitration and commercial courts of New York, The Hague, London, Stockholm and others. The Fund defends the rights, economic and other interests of investors: Russian citizens, foreigners, stateless persons, refugees, and legal entities, as well as legal persons which are protected under the Russian jurisdiction and in need of effective protection of rights granted by national and international laws.
The Fund accumulates modern professional, intellectual, and practical tools and techniques to protect the rights of investors in foreign countries. Our team focuses on the settlement of disputes not only in Russia but also in international arbitration (e.g. UNCITRAL – United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, ICC – Chambre de commerce international/International Chamber of Commerce, Paris; AAA – American Arbitration Association, New York; ICSID – International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, Washington; LCIA – The London Court of International Arbitration); we have extensive experience in the field of economic law (investment protection, the right of the World Trade Organization, international tax law and the de-offshorization, sanctions, etc.); we have extensive experience in the field of economic law (investment protection, the right of the World Trade Organization, international tax law and the de-offshorization, sanctions, etc.).
Our specialists represented the interests and collaborated with such major corporations as MiG, RIA “Novosti”, Rosaviakosmos, the Ministry of economic development of Russia, etc.
A pilot project of the Fund was organizational, expert and legal support of the claim of the citizen of Russia against the Republic of Lithuania submitted to the Arbitration court of Moscow (for compensation for damages caused by the unlawful nationalization of JSC Bank “SNORAS”).
