Join the Middle East Chapter for "Protecting Oil & Gas Investments: Securing and Invoking Invaluable Investment Treaty Protection and Recent Key Developments". Potentially invaluable legal protections are available to those investing in emerging markets under international investment treaties. Recent developments in the Middle East have significantly expanded the availability of such protection, including investments within the region. The protections available under these treaties can be enforced directly against host states by investors through international arbitration and resulting awards can be enforced globally. Nowhere are these protections more valuable than in the oil and gas sector.
This presentation will cover how such protections can be secured and successfully invoked, particularly for investments within the region. We will also look at how claims for losses arising from treaty breaches are assessed and how evidence as to the scale of losses can be most compellingly presented to tribunals.
Registration is complimentary for all members and non-members, but an RSVP is required to attend the event. Please RSVP to Fernando Ortega at Fernando.Ortega@live.com or +971 56 610 4124 by October 15.
