On 30 June 2022 at 10:00 10th St. Petersburg International Legal Forum will host a session entitled ‘Corporate Governance: Responding to the Challenges Posed by Sanctions’.
The session is dedicated to the improvement of the current legal regime of companies, taking into account the present international agenda.
Participants of the discussion will analyze the opportunities for Russian business to carry out major economic projects, discuss various options of regulating the acquisition of large blocks of shares of PJSCs, and talk about the tools of adaptation of corporate governance to the crisis.
“The measures introduced should be aimed at protecting the rights and interests of those affected by the sanctions: companies, their employees, and Russian shareholders.
