Georgios Petrochilos KC will speak on “Investment arbitration and treaty shopping: defining the architecture of a foreign investment in light of protections offered by international treaties” as part of the International Arbitration and Risk Management course, organised by SDA Bocconi School of Management.

Georgios will address how to better plan foreign direct investments in order to enhance the protections granted to investors by different international treaties.

The three-day intensive course is aimed at in-house counsel, project managers, professionals, and private practitioners who wish to further their knowledge on how to effectively manage cross-border disputes and assess the risks and opportunities, as well as stay up to date on the best international practices.

The course, which will be in English, will take place from Tuesday 28 November to Thursday 30 November at the Bocconi School of Management in Milan, Italy.
