On the 28th of June, 2024, a panel discussion titled "Risk management in a corporation: perspectives on risks from Legal, GR and PR" was held in St. Petersburg during SPILF. The Kesarev team organized this event in collaboration with Gazpromneft Expert Solutions, Mikhailov and Partners communications company with information support from Forbes Russia and Legal Insight.

We decided to bring three functions together for the first time in order to delve into and comprehensively analyze the risks that modern businesses encounter. Experts explored real-life cases involving taxation, environmental concerns, labor and immigration laws, and M&A transactions from various angles. According to Kesarev GR specialists, these areas should be closely monitored by all businesses.

The speakers at the event were:
• Svetlana Bukhtoyarova, Head of the Business Partnership Development Center, Gazpromneft Expert Solutions
• Vitaly Zhigulin and Yuri Panasik, partners, Kesarev
• Viktor Chukov, Head of Crisis Management, Mikhailov & Partners

The discussion was moderated by Rafael Zohrabyan, General Director of Saint-Gobain in Russia.

The experts presented case studies on the topics highlighting the critical importance for lawyers, GR and PR departments to coordinate their actions in order to effectively mitigate business risks.

The event ended with an exciting excursion to the dome atop the business center housing the Gazpromneft Expert Solutions office. All the guests were able to enjoy a stunning view of the renowned rooftops of Saint Petersburg.
