The rise of economic and political power in emerging economies combined with an increasing tilt towards protectionism in North America, the UK and Europe means the ability to effectively navigate investor-state dispute regimes is more important than ever.
With these prevailing geopolitical and economic conditions, there has been a significant increase in the number and type of treaty and trade agreement disputes. Commodity pricing disputes are also increasing rapidly, and new disputes founded in areas such as climate change have emerged in bilateral trade markets.
Utilising our substantial experience in investor-state disputes, and accessing domestic and international experts from an elite team, we advise our clients how to obtain and enforce the best protections under bilateral investment treaties and contracts and, when the stakes are high, successfully manage sensitive disputes around the world.
We have advised numerous public and private organisations, and governments, in complex and sensitive investor-state arbitrations, helping our clients achieve favourable outcomes across diverse industries and jurisdictions.
