Investor-State & Treaty-Based Arbitration

With over 2,700 treaties in force around the world, disputes between foreign investors and host states are on the rise – as are the complexities of the intersecting legal systems, cultures, and procedures they entail; our Global Disputes lawyers have decades of experience with these issues and provide seamless, cross-practice responses to achieve our clients’ goals.

As the interactions between sovereign and state-owned entities and foreign investors continue to expand, disputes inevitably arise under bilateral investment treaties, free trade agreements, and foreign investment laws. Global Disputes has represented corporate clients and foreign governments in all manner of investment disputes in all major investment arbitration fora. Our lawyers have extensive experience in resolving issues related to expropriation, full protection and security, discrimination, most favored nation treatment, and fair and equitable treatment, as well as challenges to judicial decisions and domestic legislation before the International Centre for Investment Disputes (ICSID) and ad hoc under the UNCITRAL Rules.
