Kazakhstan Dispute Resolution Forum Featuring SZP Partner Amir Begdesenov
On 10 March 2017, the Almaty Holiday Inn Hotel hosted the Kazakhstan Dispute Resolution Forum.
The Forum highlights:
· Disputes with the Government;
· Disputes Between Companies; and
· Arbitration and Mediation.
SZP Partner Amir Begdesenov attended the Forum where he presented his study of the antitrust case against SK-Pharmacia LLP.
The SK-Pharmacia case made headlines due to its novelty. Most probably, it is the first case in Kazakhstan practice when a purchaser is accused of abusing the dominant position. The imposed penalty made up 1.3 billion tenge.
