On July 6, 2013, Ilya Nikiforov, Managing Partner of the St. Petersburg Law Office of Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners, was accepted to a global panel of energy industry arbitrators – the Energy Arbitrators List (EAL).
The Energy Arbitrators List is a readily accessible source of information on arbitrators with experience in energy disputes. The List has been created as a tool to assist parties to arbitration proceedings in nominating arbitrators, an important step in the arbitration process. EAL is international in character and seeks to reflect the various aspects of energy disputes. It contains arbitrators who are lawyers and arbitrators who come from the business or technical side of the industry.
Appointment of Ilya Nikiforov is the result of an extensive review by a globally diverse committee of arbitration experts and industry leaders. Subjects of that review included energy industry expertise and international arbitration expertise and experience.
