To provide you with a deeper insight into the world of investment treaty arbitration, our International Dispute Resolution specialists organize an interactive presentation.

We will explain the nature of investment treaty arbitration and discuss a number of hot topics.

Using real-life examples taken from over 20 years of combined experience, we will answer your questions in English or French to help you in understanding this ever-evolving complex body of law.

This round-table will be structured as follows:

  • Why are investment treaties relevant for your business ?

– What is an investment treaty?
– How does it protect investments? – How you can get your investment protected?

  • General introduction to investment treaty arbitration (definition, contrast to commercial arbitration, introduction to BITs and certain sector-specific multilateral treaties)
  • Hot topics, practical considerations and examples
  • Choice of seat and arbitrator, common procedural issues
  • Do BITs between EU Member States still apply?
  • Transparency, the UNCITRAL Rules and the presumption of openness
  • Importance of local knowledge
  • Enforcement
  • Your questions

Our presenters will be: Horst Daniel (Partner, Frankfurt), Rostislav Pekar (Partner, Prague) and Antoine Adeline (Partner, Paris).

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris.
