Protecting Business: Balancing Economic Development and Public Order

15 Jun , 14:30–16:00
Russian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Forum
Congress Centre, conference hall D1

In recent decades, Russian state criminal law has undergone a real transformation. The relations between the authorities and representatives of business have been properly framed, while criminal legislation for business has been considerably liberalized. Still, administrative pressure practices remain in place; at the same time, the new economic situation demands new approaches to the development of entrepreneurial activity. How to strike a balance between private and public interests? Evaluating the changes in economic legislation in terms of ensuring safe conduct of business in the country: can we talk about their effectiveness? Are new legislative solutions needed? The key is not to get in the way: what should be a comfortable regulatory environment for doing business? What problems arise most often in the prosecution of entrepreneurs? What are the terms and procedures for conducting forensic examinations? The court guaranteeing legal protection: what are the emerging precedents on economic crimes? What is the role of public institutions in protecting the rights of entrepreneurs? Will digital platforms become a new model of business protection?
