The Partner of PB Legal | Panin, Bayramkulov & Partners Alan Bayramkulov commented for Vedomosti on the news that the London Court of International Arbitration has lifted the ban on litigation for sanctioned companies.

The Partner of PB Legal | Panin, Bayramkulov & Partners Alan Bayramkulov commented for Vedomosti on the news that the London Court of International Arbitration has lifted the ban on litigation for sanctioned companies.

Previously, to process each judicial contribution from the Russian and Belarusian companies under sanctions, the London Court of International Arbitration had to obtain a special license from the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), but now there is no such requirement, because the London Court of International Arbitration received a general license to process payments from the sanctioned persons.

Alan Bayramkulov noted that, most likely, this step of OFSI is aimed at supporting the arbitration, which traditionally dealt with a significant number of disputes involving Russian persons. Without a general license, the London Court of International Arbitration would have faced a decline in income. That is why the London Court of International Arbitration was granted a general license.

The withdrawal of funds from the type "O" account to another account of the right holder is allowed only with the permission of the Government Commission.

The rights holders to whom payments must be made under a special procedure include those from unfriendly countries and companies under their control, as well as rights holders who advocated the imposition of sanctions on Russia, rights holders who have terminated, suspended or substantially curtailed their activities in Russia, and rights holders brought to administrative responsibility for discrediting the Russian armed forces or contempt of state power or criminal responsibility for spreading fakes about the actions of the Russian army.
