Kirill Ermolenko spoke at the XI SPILF

In Kirill's opinion, the arbitration courts system practices have demonstrated their high mobility and adaptability to the rapidly changing circumstances. An example of such changes was almost immediate adoption of digital justice with the outbreak of the coronavirus and the emergence of practice under the new article 248.1 of the Russian Code of Arbitration Procedure, which protects the property and corporate rights of Russian investors in foreign assets.

In addition to the positive changes, it was noted that certain procedural institutions need to be updated as soon as possible. This applies, for instance, to the institution of interim measures, for which there is no positive law enforcement practice. The session participants actively debated the topic of overburdening the courts of first instance and possible ways of solving this problem.
