Ilya is a PhD candidate at the Department of Financial Law, Leiden Law School (The Netherlands). His research focuses on the topic of enterprise group insolvency and the role of intra-group financial arrangements (e.g. cross-guarantees and intra-group loans) in rescue and restructuring of distressed multinational enterprise groups, including banking groups. He also explores how new technologies (AI, blockchain, IoT) affect and transform financial practices, as well as the rules of financial, corporate and insolvency law. This interest has led to Ilya’s participation in the Oxford Digital Assets Project.

Prior to joining Leiden University, Ilya studied in Russia, Hungary and the Netherlands (cum laude). He also worked as an associate with Mannheimer Swartling, Borenius and other law firms in Russia, where he advised bankruptcy trustees and assisted corporate debtors and creditors in restructuring and insolvency proceedings.

Ilya is a member of INSOL Europe’s Young Academics’ Network in Insolvency Law (YANIL), INSOL Europe’s Insolvency Tech & Digital Assets Wing and a board member of INSOL International’s Early Researcher Academics (ERA) group. He also acts as a coach of Leiden University teams in Ian Fletcher International Insolvency Law Moot. In 2019 the team of Leiden University went to the quarter finals and won the awards for the “Best written submission in the written submissions round” and “Best individual mooter in the preliminary rounds”.
