On July 18, 2017, Oleksandr Vasylyovych Hladii, who is a lawyer, arbitration manager, and director of Law Agency "Absolut" LLC, became a member of the International Bar Association (the IBA).


The International Bar Association (IBA) was founded in 1947; its members include over 80,000 private legal practitioners and more than 200 associations of lawyers and legal communities today.


Members of the Association actively participate in the drafting of Codes and Guidelines, which in its turn contributes to the formation of an efficiently operating system of international law.


For example, in 2011, the Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration and the Guidelines for the Development of International Arbitration Precautions, as well as the Principles of Conduct in the Legal Profession, were developed.


In 1999, the IBA compiled the Rules for Evidence Collection in International Arbitration, which are still used in arbitration proceedings after the revision held in 2010.


The Association has a special consultative status in the UN General Assembly and the UN Economic and Social Council and has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
