Vladislav is a managing partner at Genuine Arbitration Service Ltd. He is the Head of the firm's International Arbitration Practice and of the Civil Law Litigation one.

Vladislav has a vast experience in representing Russian and foreign companies in international commercial arbitrations (under the LCIA, ICC, SCC, ICAC rules, etc.) and before Russian courts. His first litigations in Russian courts go back to as far as 1999; his international arbitration practice started in 2002.

Vladislav's experience in international commercial arbitrations encompasses different types of disputes subjected to Russian, English and international private laws. Amongst them those related to international sale of goods play a major role which is not surprisingly given the predominance of trade disputes in international commercial arbitrations.

Alongside the representation of clients in international commercial arbitrations, Vladislav regularly appears before Russian courts in a wide range of civil law litigations (arising out of construction, sale, lease, financial contracts, provision of services, tort, unjust enrichment, invalidity of contracts, corporate disputes, etc.). His specialization however is not limited to civil law disputes only – an important part of his litigation experience represent disputes against fiscal authorities. Thus, for instance Vladislav have represented for a number of years a large Russian petrochemical company in a sheer number of tax disputes against Interregional Tax Office No. 1 for the largest taxpayers.
