The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 155 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

Force Majeure 2020: Time to Lawyer Up!

Fired from work? Evicted from a space you’re renting? Partner refusing to pay their bills? WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on practically every business sector: from cancelled events, to shuttered shopping malls, restaurants, cafes, and office centres, to closed banks.

The Roscongress Foundation and the law firm Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners will address five of the most common questions raised regarding the pandemic.

On 29 April at 12:30, the online conference ‘Force Majeure 2020: Business and Acts of God’ will discuss if entrepreneurs can leverage a force majeure clause to excuse a breach of obligations to business partners, how international law handles the force majeure clause in similar situations, how to address rent issues, and how employers should structure their labour relations.

Event Participants:

· Anton Alekseev, Counsel, Real Estate and Construction Practice, Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners

· Oleg Buyko, Counsel, Litigation Practice, Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners

· Valery Eremenko, Partner, Head of Litigation Practice, Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners

· Anna Ivanova, Head, Employment Law Practice, Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners

· Vera Rikhterman, Partner, Litigation Practice, Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners

The conference will be broadcast on the Roscongress TV Youtube channel and on the Roscongress Foundation’s official Facebook account. The conference is held as part of the ‘Business: A Survival Guide’ event series.
