Online Discussion "Mitigating Legal Risks in E-Commerce. Potential for Growth and New Challenges"

The recent e-commerce growth has been nothing short of massive: Russian online retail giants have been expanding their businesses, undertaking IPOs and taking over new segments. However, the booming growth has been facing serious external obstacles: increased attention from regulatory and law enforcement agencies, an unstable economy, sanctions, inflation, high loan interest rates and potential bank crises.

What legal tools could aid in the sustainable development of e-commerce? What risks are the highest, and how could those be mitigated? How can the costs of cross-border commerce be kept down? Attorneys of EPAM will answer those and other topical questions online on March 25, 2021 (Thursday) from 10:00 to 11:30.
