CDR returns to the subject of international arbitration, as it assesses the state of the market going forward into 2018. Issues to be discussed will range from the future of investor-state investment disputes, how to manage emergency arbitrations, and will include the latest news on the hot topics and current cases in international arbitration, as well a look at specialist areas such as tax arbitrations, and the potential for costs orders against third-party funders.
WilmerHale Counsel Danielle Morris will speak on the panel "The Future of Investor-State Investment Disputes." The role of investment arbitration in protecting foreign direct investment is being debated as never before. With the demise of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, and the agreement of new investment court structures following EU treaties with Canada and Japan, this panel will look to see what the future holds, with Brexit in mind as negotiations continue. This session will consider recent developments, current trends at major investor-state arbitral fora, including ICSID, in a session that is both topical and practically relevant.
