Testimonials About Sochi Legal

Paul Marmor
Partner at Sherrards Solicitors LLP

Sochi Legal was brilliant. Where else could we go to one of the most high-profile, high-calibre and outstanding legal conferences in the Russian region and end up looking at bees in a bee park?! It was wonderful, and Sochi had a great feel about it. The panels were fascinating, and it was really interesting to hear people’s perspectives in some of the more serious ones concerning sanctions. I loved the delegates, and I am glad I took the decision to come along.

A very interesting event with lively, interactive sessions and lots of corporate in-house and government lawyers.

Thanks for the conference you brought together. It was hugely appreciated both in terms of the people I was able to meet and the formal informative discussions. Thanks very much for arranging such a good collection of delegates and subjects for discussion at Sochi Legal.

I liked the Sochi Legal forum very much. All sessions were dedicated to the consideration of burning and the most practically significant matters. Speeches delivered by its participants were straight-out, frank and highly professional. I'd like to thank my colleagues from law firms Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners and Yug for the perfect organization of the forum.

Anton Panchenkov
Head of Group at Goltsblat BLP, Russia

I’d like to note the high organizational level of the Forum, as well as the right choice of the format for discussions, where traditional questions to the speakers from the audience were replaced with quite animated and fascinating unofficial discussions on the most topical issues. The panel discussion ["Asia Focus: Investors’ Expectations, Investment Support and Their Protection"] was really interesting, since it provided a whole range of legal perspectives from the key Asian jurisdictions (Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong), as well as from Russia’s and Kazakhstan’s consulting representatives. Moreover, Boris Titov, the Russian Presidential Commissioner for the Entrepreneurs’ Rights, who used to head the Russian of the Russian-Chinese Business Council for about 10 years, shared its most interesting experience, both from the business perspective and from the point of view of human relations.

Oleg Kiselev

The success of the forum was possible through the high level of its preparations, the topical issues discussed at the forum, the active role of moderators and speakers, as well as of the guests attending the discussions. A good choice of topics for discussion by the forum attendees, their natural harmony with the forum location, the optimum choice of the sessions format were surely appreciated by all the attendees.
