Mr. Vilius Bernatonis, head of the Baltic States branch of CIArb and partner at TARK GRUNTE SUTKIENE, noted on the occasion: “The commercial arbitration as a method of regulation of business conflicts is gaining recognition in the Baltics. This was a milestone event, as for the first time in our region the attendees were given an opportunity of becoming Associates of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
