About Kazan Legal Forum

About Kazan Legal Forum

Prominent lawyers, business representatives, consultants, and policy makers from across the globe will meet to exchange views on the latest developments in the legal and economic sectors of their respective countries and regions, discuss prospects for investment cooperation, and enjoy the forum’s rich social and cultural programme.

Known as Russia’s third capital with a history spanning over 1,000 years, Kazan ranks among the top five most visited cities in Russia and the Kazan Kremlin is a UNESCO heritage site.

Kazan is a meeting point of civilisations, a symbolic ‘crossroads’ of Asian and European religions and cultures — all within an hour’s flight of Moscow. Year after year, the Republic of Tatarstan continues to be recognised as the leading Russian region in terms of attracting investment. Some of Russia’s largest industrial companies, top banks and investment holdings such as TAIF, KAMAZ, AK BARS, and Nizhnekamskneftekhim are based in the region and its many foreign investors include Bosch, Daimler, Ford, Fujitsu, Honeywell, Microsoft, Panasonic, and Siemens. With its extensive ties to the Arab world, the Republic of Tatarstan has also pioneered the use of Islamic banking.

Together with representatives from Tatarstan, we will discuss the legal aspects of infrastructure projects, investments in innovation, corporate law issues, and the structuring of international business agreements. We will also talk about criminal and administrative risks, the growing role of compliance, integration and cooperation within the boundaries of Eurasia, as well as the legal side of cooperation with Middle Eastern and Asian countries.

You will get a chance to discuss the latest legal trends and network with the leading lawyers from Russia, the EU, the US, and Asia. There will also be an opportunity to tour the sights and landmarks of Kazan, one of the oldest cities in the region, and experience delightful Tatar cuisine.

If you enjoyed Sochi Legal held in autumn 2014, attended by more than 200 delegates from 26 countries, about 50 of whom were corporate lawyers and senior executives representing major Russian and international companies, then Kazan Legal will be for you.

Our ‘unique selling point’ is the dynamic format of our events, focusing on short sessions and succinct presentations, leaving more time for networking and socialising. In addition to a thought-provoking business agenda, we offer numerous social and cultural activities free of charge to all confirmed delegates.
