Court practice and existing experience play a role of reference points for structuring and implementing various projects and particularly complex infrastructure projects.

Some of the agreements that are concluded become the subject of court disputes. Most often these disputes are related to the procedure for concluding the agreements (competitive criteria and their parameters, requirements for the experience of the applicant and so on), disputes related to the non-transfer of the object or property in the concession are appealed. At the same time in the public space is available not only information about court disputes, but also other information about specific PPP projects in the media, which often negatively affects the implementation of the project.

Enforcement practice, information about the project is a risk area for the organizer of the tender, the investor, the public party. The webinar by You & Partners will analyze the key practices of antitrust authorities and arbitration courts for the year 2020 and the map of information and communication risks (ICR) of PPP projects. The webinar will cover the following issues:

  • the main regions of the Russian Federation, in which there is a concentration of jurisprudence in the conclusion and implementation of agreements;

  • the main subjects of court proceedings;

  • the most high-profile cases of 2020 and their significance;

One of the key elements in most concession and PPP agreements is project financing. The involvement of bank financing is possible in most cases via a direct agreement between the public, private and the financing parties. When considering whether to provide financing for a project, banks ask the investor to submit a memorandum on the risks of the project. Such a memorandum must cover the procedure for concluding an agreement with the public side, a procedure for concluding a direct agreement with the financing party and the legal powers of the public party to enter such agreements. Furthermore, the memorandum must cover the risks arising from the provisions of such agreements and regulatory grey areas of the relevant legislation. You & Partners is presenting a webinar that will provide practical advice on how to assess the risks of a PPP project and prepare risk memoranda based on its experience in PPP projects. The webinar will cover the following issues:
  • risk memorandum - structure, addressees, purpose;
  • what risks of the project should be reflected in the risk memorandum for every stage of project implementation;

Как часто мы можем слышать советы по проектам ГЧП? Что действительно нужно для того, чтобы проект шел гладко и гладко?

На нашем мероприятии вы не услышите ни одного совета по продвижению проекта. Мы в шутливой форме расскажем о худших практиках реализации проектов ГЧП в нашей стране.

Если ты разбил окно, дружище,

Не спешите с исповедью.

Подожди немного, на всякий случай

Внезапного акта войны.

Артиллерия выстрелит,

Разбивая окна везде,

Тогда никто тебя не обвинит

За стекло, которое ты разбил.

«Вредный совет» Григория Остера

Приходить! Будет весело!

В любом случае, ГЧП доставляет массу удовольствия!
