Tatiana Tereshchenko became one of the authors of the book “Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Russia and Former USSR States”

Tatiana Tereshchenko, head of the analytical department of Prime Advice, became one of the authors of the  book "Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Russia and Former USSR States". This book is the first full-scale study of the application of the New York Convention by State courts in the countries of the former Soviet Union, published in English. Tatiana participated in the preparation of the study, becoming one of the authors of the article-by-article commentary to the Convention.

The Convention introduced a straightforward model for the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, which has had a unifying global effect, and created homogeneous national legal regimes in the field of commercial law.

The 15 sovereign states that emerged from the dissolution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1991, all having adopted the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, today are drawing increasing attention from international law firms and global arbitral institutions. This book is compiled under the editorship of the Secretary General of the Russian Arbitration Association with attention to various relevant national laws and procedures.

A total of 71 contributors, all leading experts on arbitration and litigation in the covered jurisdictions, provide in-depth research encompassing the following approaches:

  • article-by-article commentary on the New York Convention with emphasis on the practice of Russian state commercial (arbitrazh) courts;
  • commentary on the relevant provisions of the Russian International Commercial Arbitration Law and the Code of Commercial Procedure;
  • analysis of law and practice on setting aside, recognition, and enforcement of arbitral awards in all non-Russian former USSR states, state by state, written by experts in each jurisdiction; and
  • a unique statistical study of all international commercial arbitration cases under the New York Convention conducted in Russia between 2008 and 2019, showing which grounds of the New York Convention are widely used by the Russian courts in different instances.
