Dear respondents,

VEGAS LEX team would like to thank you in advance for your time spent answering the questions below.

The idea of this short questionnaire emerged from our clients’ queries about Russian court system and litigation specifics. We decided to reveal the most common persuasions and illusions about litigation in Russia and its court system in general, and invite practicing lawyers outside Russia to become our respondents.

The test will take 3 minutes in average.

Best regards,
VEGAS LEX team
