This EMTA Webinar is aimed at both EM investors and legal advisors, and will provide analysis and commentary on how arbitration affects investments in the Emerging Markets.

Topics Include:

  • What are the recent developments in investment arbitrations and enforcements relating to sovereign debt (including Pakistan, Venezuela and Nigeria)?
  • How can EM investors structure investments through treaty-planning to reach the best results?
  • What is the secondary market for arbitration awards and are litigation funds a better way to gain exposure to that market?
  • What is the growing role of corporate intelligence in international arbitration (pre-investment post-arbitration)?
  • What are the legal and investigative challenges to enforcing sovereign awards/sovereign asset recovery?
  • How can insurance be used to collect awards?
  • Can arbitration be used as a tool for bond restructuring?
  • What are single play companies and their effects on lawsuits against sovereigns?
  • How has Trump’s Administration and looming Brexit affected arbitrations globally, and what (if any) are the implications for arbitrations going forward in light of the US elections?
  • What are the proposed changes in recent treaties (e.g., CAC clause embedded)?
  • What are Effects of COVID on arbitrations?

Additional Support Provided by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP.
