Legal representation in arbitration
Representation in an arbitration court is a procedure that allows a third party to protect the rights and interests of participants in the judicial process. An important condition is that the representative who acts on behalf of the principal should not be a direct participant in the court, i.e. he should not be an interested person. Therefore, most often the interests of their clients are represented by experienced lawyers/lawyers who know the relevant section of the legislation well.
A capable person with executed and confirmed powers may act as a representative in the arbitration court.
To represent the interests of a legal entity, an individual entrepreneur or a citizen, it is necessary to be a lawyer, have a higher legal education or an academic degree in a legal specialty.
The parties in such a process are the plaintiff and the defendant, and only in cases of claim proceedings initiated by the arbitration court on the basis of a claim against the defendant on behalf of the plaintiff.
Since 2019, representation in an arbitration court can only be carried out by persons with a legal education that lawyers and other lawyers have.
Judges, assistant judges, investigators, prosecutors and other employees of the court apparatus may not be representatives in the arbitration court. An exception is the case if they are representatives of the authorities.
The Arbitration Court sends a court notice to the legal entity at its address. If a legal entity has requested to send notices to a different address, the court sends a notice to it as well.
It is considered that the defendant has been duly notified if the notice has been handed to him personally. Or the notice was handed to an adult citizen living together with the defendant. In this case, the recipient signs the delivery notice, which is returned to the arbitration court.
Persons taking part in the arbitration court are summoned to court by means of a registered letter with a notice. It is also permissible to notify by court summons, by phone or fax.
Yes, a lawyer representing a person in an arbitration court can collect information and documents, certificates, etc. in any instances. Including in government agencies, which in turn cannot refuse to provide the necessary information to a lawyer.

In addition, it is necessary to find and study similar cases from judicial practice, as well as do everything to reduce the risk of an unsuccessful outcome.
In addition, the authorized representative should try to settle the dispute in a pre-trial manner. To do this, the lawyer negotiates with opponents and offers options for mutually beneficial concessions that will be beneficial to both sides. If this does not lead to anything, then the case is transferred to the court, where the lawyer acts on behalf of his employer.
