Maxim Kulkov acted as an arbitrator in the XIII Annual ABA Conference on the Resolution of CIS-Related Business Disputes

Maxim Kulkov, managing partner of KK&P Trial Lawyers, arbitrated a live mock demonstration, in which the fact pattern involved one of the parties seeking to obtain and use discovery from the United States using the Section 1782 process in a Russia-seated arbitration.

Section 1782 is a federal statute that allows a party of a legal proceeding outside the United States to apply to an American court to obtain evidence for use in the non-US proceeding.

Together with Maxim the arbitrators were Gavin Chesney (Debevoise & Plimpton), Alice Fremuth-Wolf (Secretary General of VIAC), Grant Hanessian (independent arbitrator, USA), Noradèle Radjai (LALIVE).
