30/12/2013

Transactions and torts involving a foreign element concluded or committed after 1 November 2013 are subject to the application of new conflict of laws rules. They were adopted as the fourth set of amendments to the Russian Civil Code (the “Amendments”). Overall, the changes seek to balance the interests of those involved, provide for increased legal certainty and some flexibility, and bring Russian law more in line with international law.
