OF THE STAGE HERMITAGE MUSEUM
The legal community, like the whole world, is currently facing a new reality as a result of the global COVID-19 epidemic.
Until now, we hoped that the pandemic would not develop too dramatically, and that global efforts to fight the disease would bring prompt, positive results. However, even the measures that have already been taken to protect people from the pandemic have made the holding of the Forum in its usual format impossible. There is an official ban on public events, national frontiers have almost entirely been closed, international transportation has been disrupted, the usual venue of the Forum is closed to visitors, and participants form many countries are strictly quarantined.
Therefore, we have been forced to postpone the IV International Insolvency Forum until May 18-22, 2021. IV International Insolvency Forum takes place as part of the X St. Petersburg International Legal Forum
