What is the difference between commercial courts of the Russian Federation and the International Commercial Arbitration (ICAC)?
  • A commercial court is a state body (representing the judicial branch of the government). The ICAC is a non-profit organization. The most reputable international arbitration courts are established under chambers of commerce and industry.
  • Judges of commercial courts are appointed by the President of the Russian Federation. ICAC arbitrators may be independently selected by the parties, based on their reputation and parties’ trust in their competence.
  • The procedure for consideration of cases in a commercial court is prescribed in the Commercial Procedure Code of the Russian Federation. The order of ICAC proceedings and the rules for evidence providing in ICAC may largely be determined by the parties to the dispute.
ICAC advantages in terms of proceedings in cases:
    li>Confidentiality (neither information on the proceedings, nor case files are published anywhere; none of the third parties is informed or advised of the companies’ participation in disputes).
  • The parties are entitled to select reputable arbitrators, whose decisions may be trusted;
  • The parties may select any convinient language and place of proceedings;
  • A streamlined and favourable treatment for execution of ICAC decisions on the territories of foreign states.

The quickness has ceased to be one of ICAC benefits long time ago, as existing legal mechanisms for delaying the recognition and execution of ICAC decisions have put them in the same league as judgements of state courts.

ICAC deficiencies:
  • The participation of a truly skilled and experienced lawyer is required!
  • ICAC awards are not subject to review on the merits!

What matters can be discussed in the ICAC?
