The report identifies Mr Bagner and Mr Söderlund as leading lawyers and arbitrators from Vinge’s litigation and arbitration practice group. Mr Bagner is noted for his vast experience both as an arbitration lawyer and as an international arbitrator. Mr Söderlund stands out as having the ability to conduct arbitration proceedings in Russian.

“Hans Bagner’s quality is that he’s been in this business for a very long time. And he’s worked for the ICC which has given him some very valuable insights. He has also been involved in a number of investment arbitrations", says Ulf Franke, secretary general, SCC Insititute, in the report.

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
