Below are some of the topics the panel will discuss:

  • What are the unique aspects of the dispute and how is it different from most investment treaty arbitrations?
  • How does a State’s sovereign right to pass retrospective legislation interfere with legitimate expectations of foreign investors?
  • In what situations can States defend the exercise of their powers to pass retrospective legislations?

He has extensive experience representing and conducting advocacy for corporations and States in commercial and investment treaty arbitrations in a broad range of sectors (including energy, infrastructure, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, and technology) under all major arbitration rules.
