Great piece by my friend Steven Philippsohn of PCB. Despite legislative change in Russia, the English Courts continue to be the jurisdiction of choice
Litigation in English Courts As the Russian government looks for solutions to further reduce corruption and fraud, we are seeing an upward trend in government agencies and state-owned entities pursuing fraudsters. These cases are showing up more and more in English courts with an increasing number of Russian litigants. In fact, from March 2014 to March 2015, only U.S. - based parties litigated more than Russians in the English Commercial Court.
