Morgan Lewis partner Bruce Johnston will all be speaking at the conference on the panel entitled ‘Russia: An appraisal of syndicated deal flow in the region's largest market.' Banking and Finance Partner Amanda Jennings and Associate Alexander Gasparyan will also be attending.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • How have decreasing commodity prices affected the Russian economy and by extension its syndicated loan market?
  • Which borrowers are tapping the market? What pricing structures and tenors are they after?
  • Are international banks willing to lend to second tier borrowers?
  • How is the relationship between international and local banks developing in Russia? Will international banks only work with state-owned banks?
