Integrites Partner Olena Perepelynska has been elected to the board of the Russian Arbitration Association at its April 20, 2017 annual general meeting in Moscow.
The Russian Arbitration Association was founded in April 2013 in Moscow to unite legal practitioners, law firms, and academics. The Association represents broad interests of the business, legal, and education communities involved in alternative dispute resolution in Russia and CIS.
According to Integrites, "the main objective of the Association is cooperation in the development of arbitration in the Russian Federation and the CIS countries, popularizing Russia as a venue for arbitration, promotion of Russian arbitrators at national and international levels within the arbitration context, as well as the promotion of foreign arbitrators interested in arbitral proceedings, directly or indirectly relating to Russia and the CIS countries. [The] Global Arbitration Review Guide to Regional Arbitration [has] several times denoted RAA [as] among [those] arbitration centers 'worth a closer look’ in Eastern Europe."
The 13 arbitration practitioners elected to the the RAA Board will serve a three-year term.
Perepelynska is the President of the Ukrainian Arbitration Association, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb), and is, according to Integrites, "included in the lists of arbitrators of the leading arbitral institutions of Austria, Belarus, Czech Republic, Georgia, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Malaysia, Poland, Romania, and Vietnam."
