Irina Suspitcyna is the Senior Associate of the International commercial arbitration practice (ICA). Joined the firm in 2014. In 2013, she received the Master of Laws degree (LL.M) at Stockholm University (Sweden). Irina has wide experience in representation of clients in disputes related to SCC rules, ICC, and the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation (ICAC), as well as in ad hoc arbitrations and Russian commercial courts with regard to cases concerning recognition and enforcement of decisions made by foreign courts and arbitration tribunals. In 2014, she earned the degree of an Associated Member of the U.K. Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (ACIArb). Acted as co-author of the "Commentary on Russian arbitration laws” (RAA).

Education:

  • Master of Laws (LL.M) in the International Commercial Arbitration Law, Stockholm University, Sweden, Faculty of law (2012 – 2013)
  • Faculty of law of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Law Degree, with honors (2004 – 06.2009) 

Проекты:

  • Representation of the interests of an Asian insurance company in four ad hoc arbitrations in London against Russian insurance companies, two of which were successfully settled after requests for arbitration were filed.
  • Representing the interests of an Asian insurance company at the Moscow Arbitration Court and the Moscow District Arbitration Court in recognition and enforcement of 12 arbitral awards rendered in London, UK. Foreign arbitration awards were enforced despite numerous objections by the opponent party regarding the jurisdiction of the arbitration, as well as improper notice and violation of public policy.
  • Representation of an engineering and construction company located in the Czech Republic in a dispute involving EUR25 million before the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce against one of the leading Russian metallurgical companies. During the oral hearings in Stockholm, Sweden, the testimony of seven witnesses and two experts in the case was carried out.
  • Representation of a Russian Design Bureau designing subsea vessels and developing deep water rescue facilities under the orders of the Russian Navy in a dispute before the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce against an Italian supplier of technological equipment. The dispute involved several complex jurisdictional issues, including EU sanctions regulation, and procedural issues such as constitution of the arbitral tribunal and the place of arbitration. As a result, the case was adjourned for a period of more than two years, which made possible protection of the interests of the client and completing parallel processes in the Russian courts.
  • Representation of the global leader in metal flow engineering in recognition and enforcement of arbitral award rendered by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce against a leading Russian metallurgical company. During the enforcement proceedings, inadequate funds were found on the company's accounts to meet the client's requirements. We initiated a bankruptcy procedure against the debtor. As a result, the whole amount was paid to the client in a short period of time.
  • Represented Kazakh company engaged in contract work in recognition and enforcement of judgments issued by the courts of Republic of Kazakhstan before the Arbitrazh Court of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region and the Federal Arbitrazh Court of the North-Western District. The case was won in spite of several objections such as lack of jurisdiction of the Kazakh courts, improper notification of the respondent about the hearings in foreign courts and public policy issues connected with involvement of the Ministry of Defense and military agreements between Russian Federation and Republic of Kazakhstan. The courts also took into consideration the estoppel argument adduced by KIAP (the respondent failed to raise these objections during the proceedings in Kazakh courts), which is still not widely used in Russian practice. Consequently the case helps to develop a positive court practice on recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in Russia. 
  • Representation of German supplier of petroleum production equipment before the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and in the matter of recognition and enforcement of arbitral award against a Russian agent who violated the obligation of providing the client with information on the sale of his equipment in Russia. The international arbitration case was won despite the opponent's allegation of public policy violations under Russian currency legislation. Having filed a foreign arbitral award enforcement petition, we succeeded in settling out of court after the defendant chose to comply with the award and reimburse the legal costs incurred by the client. We also conducted an investigation about the violation of an agency agreement regarding the sale of products in other jurisdictions.
  • Representation of a client, major Russian agro-industrial group, in a dispute with a heavy-weight in the Australian livestock-farming market. The dispute arose out of a supply contract worth several millions US dollars. The contract had an arbitration clause for disputes between the parties to be referred to the International Commercial Arbitration Court (ICAC) at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation (RF CCI). It proved possible, however, to settle the dispute under a pre-action protocol following long talks, which resulted in a settlement on terms favourable for the client.
