Kommersant Business Breakfast
Unjustified Tax Benefit: Where is the Balance of Interests of Business and Authority?

Venue: Gray Hall, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Participation upon presentation of a badge

Details

Slower economic growth, uncertainty on global markets and primarily on commodity market together with budget deficit forces the society and the state to look for new approaches to fine-tune the tax system and resolve tax conflicts. One of the main tasks of the state is to fight tax evasion through fly-by-night companies and aggressive tax planning methods.

Lack of concrete rules in this sphere, increasingly strict requirements covering previous periods and instability of judicial practice lead to uncertainty in the scope of tax liability and unpredictability of tax claims.

The question of where lies the just and economically feasible balance of fiscal and business interests will be discussed at the business breakfast hosted by the Kommersant Publishing House.

Discussion topics:
  • Taxation policy in the new economic environment: opinions, forecasts, expectations

Vegas Lex Business Breakfast
Special Investment Contracts as a Driver for Foreign Manufacturing Facilities Localization in Russia:
Practice and Prospects

Venue: White Hall, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Participation is by invitation only

Details

The Legal firm VEGAS LEX is glad to invite to a Business Breakfast devoted to the prospects of development and implementation of the instrument serving as an incentive for manufacturers — a special investment contract (SPIC) and the experience with first federal SPIC. The breakfast will take place in the course of the 7th St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, on May 18, 2017.

In the end of 2014, Federal Law No. 488-FZ «On Industrial Policy in the Russian Federation» was adopted. The Law provides for SPIC as one of the measures of government support. In summer 2015 Government of the Russian Federation in its Order No. 708 adopted the template of a model SPIC and the rules of its execution. Up to now, only 8 SPIC have been made. Over 16 applications for SPIC are under review in the Ministry of Industry and commerce of the Russian Federation and in Industrial Development Fund. Foreign companies showed special interest to this new instrument of government’s industrial policy, which gives the private party of SPIC «in exchange» for undertaking to establish or to overhaul a localized industrial manufacturing, facility or for a new product manufacturing in Russia exclusive rights to benefits, preferences and other advantages from a public party of the contract: the Russian Federation, a region and/or a municipality.

After the review of the first applications by prospective investors to enter into SPIC, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce of the Russian Federation prepared material amendments to Government Order No. 708, refining the rules for execution, amendment and termination of SPIC, as well as the template of a model SPIC.

Subjects for Discussion:

  1. Localization of industrial manufacturing by foreign companies in Russia: challenges and best practices.
  2. SPIC types and applications. Special Investment Contract as a driver for priority industrial development. The existing regulatory environment and new approaches to statutory regulation of localization procedures.
  3. Real and potential capacities of SPIC. Value for investors and persons engaged in investment projects implementation. Major incentives and governmental support to a private party of SPIC.
  4. Specifics of SPIC structure and execution at the federal level. Business plan, investor’s capacities, preliminary negotiations. «Traps and pitfalls» of SPIC application and how to eliminate them.
  5. First success in SPIC implementation.

Among the experts:

  • Nadezhda Karpova, Director of the Legal Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia
  • Maxim Grigoryev, Partner, Head of special projects VEGAS LEX
  • Diyas Assanov, General Counsel, Siemens LLC
  • Olga Safronova, Director of the Law Department, Sberbank PJSC

Centre of Insolvency Studies Business Breakfast
Efficiency of insolvency proceedings: ways to improve

Venue: Italian Patio, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Participation is by invitation only

Details

The participants of this Business Breakfast will discuss the efficacy of insolvency proceedings in lawmaking and in law enforcement practice, including the administration of pro-debtor and pro-creditor policies in legal regulation.

In reference to insolvency proceedings, most analysts tend to use such adjectives as «inefficient,» «liquidation-minded,» and so on. Then they propose one or a couple of new instruments purported to improve the efficacy. What are the chances of such isolated legislative improvements yielding any real upgrade of the efficacy of insolvency proceedings?

But how does one evaluate the efficacy of insolvency proceedings? What must such evaluation include? What criteria may be applicable? Should there be a set of universal criteria equally applied to all debtor categories? Or does the concept of efficacy take on different contents with different categories of debtors?

Speakers:

  • Viktor Belchenko, Director, Centre of Insolvency Studies LLC, Chair of the Expert Panel on Toxic Assets at the Russian Banks Association, Managing Partner BSR PARTNERS
  • Svetlana Karelina, Doctor of Laws, Full Professor of the Chair of Enterprise Law, School of Law of Mikhail Lomonosov State University of Moscow, MA program leader in Legal Regulation of Insolvency (Bankruptcy), members of the Research Advisory Council of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation)
  • Rustem Miftakhutdinov, Associate Professor of the Department of Entrepreneurial and Corporate Law, Kutafin Moscow State Law University — Judge of the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation (retired)
  • Sidney Brooks, Former Federal Bankruptcy Judge, United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado
  • Aleksey Yukhnin, Director of the Development Projects, Interfax Information Services Group — Director, Center of Bankruptcy Problems

SIAC Seminar
The Bear and the Lion: A Comparison of the Regimes for Interim Measures in International Arbitration in Russia and Singapore - Types, Timing and Tactics

Venue: Hyde Park, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Participation upon presentation of a badge

Details

Interim measures are a powerful arsenal in an arbitrating party’s toolbox. Pending the full hearing of the matter, interim measures would allow a party to obtain interim orders to, among other things, prevent the dissipation of assets by the opposing party, secure the amount in dispute, and prevent damage to or loss of the subject matter of the dispute. Interim measures may be sought from the courts, the tribunal having jurisdiction of the matter, or an emergency arbitrator pending the constitution of the tribunal. Despite being often used in practice, national laws and arbitration rules provide little guidance on how an application for interim measure should be dealt with and the tests to be applied.

The panel session will delve into the issues raised above, and provide a comparative analysis of the regimes for interim measures that are available in Russia and Singapore, as well as discuss the strategies and tactics to effectively use these measures.

from 14:00 to 15:30

Business Lunch
Innovations and Law with Marc S. Firestone, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of PMI

Venue: White Hall, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Participation is by invitation only

Details

Companies take on the greatest risk when developing innovative products. They are driven by the passion to be a leader and create new markets. The route from an idea to its implementation may take years. It might happen that bringing a product from the ideation state to commercialization takes decades. The pace of innovation depends on scientific progress, quality of academic studies, public acceptance of new ideas, availability of financial resources, public policy and many other factors. Shall the law be an engine of innovations? What is the approach in other jurisdictions? Which role should the governments, regulators, businesses and scientific communities play in the development of innovations? Participants in the Business Lunch will attempt to find answers to these questions. They will discuss the existing challenges, the future of companies in the environment of regulatory uncertainty, the science behind innovative products, the constructive dialogue among businesses and regulators, and the ideal regulation promoting innovations. Participants will be able to debate current regulatory challenges in Russia in the context of innovations and ways of turning them into opportunities.

Business lunch is hosted by:

Baker McKenzie Business Lunch
Artificial intelligence

Venue: White Hall, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Participation is by invitation only

Details

«Silicon valley is coming to eat our lunch.» This now-famous phrase, spoken in 2014 by Jamie Dimon, executive director of JP Morgan, was a warning about the expansion of new technologies and their rapid penetration into traditional business. No company is safe from the risk of having its lunch eaten. It is therefore crucial that all companies stay up to date with technological trends and continually rethink their approaches.

We are in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, with a wide range of technologies becoming increasingly integrated into all aspects of our lives, converging and advancing so rapidly that the term artificial intelligence is practically a household word. Artificial intelligence is already used in numerous sectors: driverless cars; autonomous machines that perform complex financial transactions; computers using behavioral data analysis and advanced facial recognition to combat terrorism; the analysis of legal documents; etc. And the range of computer-assisted tasks is only going to expand, with the amount of investment in the sphere steeply expanding.

As artificial intelligence is used in more areas of human activity, the legal and regulatory questions surrounding this topic become more complicated. Regulators have always struggled to keep pace with the ultra-fast changes in technology, and artificial intelligence is no exception. New artificial intelligence applications give rise to legal challenges, for example liability in accidents involving driverless cars.

How should artificial intelligence be defined for the purposes of regulation? What are the best practices and trends in regulation? What characteristics of artificial intelligence present the greatest danger — including health and security risks — to people? Can legal regulation lower such risks, providing adequate protection right now? If not, when? Is it even possible for laws to regulate relations and consequences that will arise in the future (and with great likelihood instantly), as a result of the synergy of technology and systems, the effect of which may be understood and assessed by humans only after such synergy takes place? These are just a few of the issues artificial intelligence presents.

To explore this complex topic, we will gather around the lunch table at the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum. There, we’ll have a team of experts from all over the world. The considerable powers of our experts’ 100% natural intelligence will help us all to get a better understanding of the legal issues surrounding artificial intelligence.
