    Participant of CECJ seminars in: Moscow, St.Petersbourg and Rome

    Thanks to the participation in the CECJ events I was able to understand the economic dynamics of the Russian market, exchanging experience with potential clients and foreign investors. CECJ has given me a new “key to understanding” the functioning of the Russian legal world and its interaction with the international actors.

    It was a very constructive experience that allowed me not only to broaden my range of action, but also to discuss multiple issues with numerous foreign professionals from different countries and with different legal specializations. A daring interaction of cultures and legal systems that has indelibly enriched my professionalism.

    I had the opportunity to attend the events in Moscow and St Petersburg in 2016, during which I was impressed by how extremely well prepared the events were in terms of accommodation, transportation and organization as well as by the excellent condition of the venues. The events that took place were also extremely successful in terms of gathering a large number of lawyers from Russia and abroad from various legal backgrounds. The way the events took place also gave me the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with all the participants enabling me to make new friends and establish key contacts from various jurisdictions, including Russia, Italy, Romania, Germany, Spain and Mexico. The contacts I have made in the events proved to be of paramount importance, especially whenever I had to deal with legal issues, substantive or procedural, on foreign law. In addition to the networking opportunities and the productive exchange of ideas, we also had the opportunity to spend time with the rest of the participants and enjoy Moscow and St Petersburg. Overall, I am really glad that I was given the opportunity to participate in this event and I fully recommend it to anyone interested in the future.

    Participant of CECJ seminars in: Hong Kong

    In January 2015, I took part in a CECJ program on international commercial arbitration in cooperation with HKIAC. This was part of the CECJ’s multi-state program on comparative legal analysis of various arbitration centers around the world that included a joint CECJ and CIArb course to receive FCIArb status. Later, I learned about CECJ seminars on Chinese law for foreign businesses in Beijing and Shanghai. The format, where Chinese lawyers speak to their foreign counterparts whose clients are interested in the Chinese market, is extremely effective. I enjoyed speaking to an audience whose business interests aligned with my legal specialization. CECJ events are not just mere presentations, as elements of professional networking are woven into them very organically. In China and Hong Kong, Russian lawyers met with their Chinese colleagues in private practice, representatives of international law firms, and members of the Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong Bar Associations. It is great that now not only Russian lawyers, but lawyers from all over the world can participate in CECJ programs. I am also pleased to learn that there are plans to hold events for foreign professionals in China. We have a lot of common issues and points of contact with international lawyers, and such projects help promote mutually beneficial cooperation. I wish you success and look forward to participating in upcoming CECJ programs.

    Dealing mainly with international commercial law, I have welcomed the CECJ initiatives with great interest. In particular, in 2016 I participated in the events held in Moscow and St. Petersburg, while in 2017 I took part in the event held in Rome.

    The events organized by CECJ are aimed at facilitating the formation of a professional network of lawyers, operating in different countries and territorial areas, through the use of the networking rotation-based “round table” system; that is providing a pre-determined number of colleagues an opportunity to explore and discuss issues of common interest.

    As far as my personal experience is concerned, the aforementioned organizational scheme has proved to be absolutely fruitful, both because it has favoured the expansion of my network of professional contacts which can be referred to for future cases involving jurisdictions other than the Italian one, and because it enabled me to offer legal advice to foreign clients with interests in Italy.

    Moreover, even from a purely practical point of view, the overall organization of the events in which I took part turned out to be of a high level and without any gaps.

    Я благодарен за участие в таком прекрасном мероприятии. Это была отличная возможность встретиться и узнать от коллег со всего мира о зарубежном праве, недавних изменениях и общих мировых тенденциях. Каждый участник владеет уникальными знаниями в разных областях права, и это позволяет каждому адвокату расширять сеть своих деловых контактов с коллегами из разных стран и по разным специализациям. Мероприятие было очень хорошо организовано. Презентации были интересными. Надеюсь, что смогу принять участие и в следующих мероприятиях CECJ.

    CECJ is a body that organizes various training events for lawyers from different countries of the world. I have an excellent experience of cooperation with CECJ in the context of events organized in Moscow, St. Petersburg, New York and Rome in the period from 2016 to 2019. These events have been planned with seriousness and commitment. Each event is thoroughly studied and prepared, and no detail is left to chance. In particular, I would like to focus on the excellent networking opportunities with colleagues. The CECJ Speed Legal Networking has a clear time regulation, and every attendee – this is very convenient – is provided with a printed directory containing professional profiles of the participants. Every minute of networking counts and I have to say that the benefits are substantial. In my law firm I work a lot with international clients, which makes it possible for me to say with confidence that CECJ events are a unique platform to start collaborations abroad bypassing professional associations in full independence. After every CECJ event I always want to repeat it, also for all the business opportunities that it creates.

    Speaker of CECJ seminar in: Barcelona

    I first learned about CECJ programs in 2018 when I saw a Barcelona Bar Association announcement about a seminar for Russian-speaking lawyers. I speak Russian (TORFL-III) and work a lot with clients in post-Soviet countries. The event seemed very interesting, and I quickly registered as a participant. Then the organizers offered me the opportunity to speak at the next such seminar, which I gladly accepted. In my opinion, the business networking platform created by CECJ is an excellent way for Spanish lawyers, especially Russian-speaking ones, to promote themselves in international markets and post-Soviet countries in particular. It helps Spanish lawyers understand the market and evaluate the needs of foreign lawyers and their clients. It is a way for us to learn about the mentality of Russian clients, lawyers, and attorneys. Each year, the CECJ Speed Legal Networking event is a full house at the Barcelona Bar Association, so I think my opinion is shared by many Spanish colleagues who are interested in the «Russian market», which includes both Russian-speaking clients who live in Spain or the EU as well as those who live in Russia and have assets or interests in Spain or the EU. On the other hand, international lawyers who come to Barcelona to attend these seminars are able to receive helpful and undistorted information about Spain and Catalonia from Spaniards and Catalans and establish direct contacts. I can say with confidence that such events are mutually beneficial – they connect lawyers from different countries, open new opportunities, and give access to new knowledge, new markets, and new clients. I look forward to many more CECJ projects in Barcelona or elsewhere!
