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

Specific topics to be addressed will include: 

  • What are the recent developments in investment arbitrations and enforcements relating to sovereign debt (including Gold Reserve/Venezuela’s potential cross-default scenarios, the Yukos mega award, sovereign immunity, and ICSID and UNCITRAL awards)?
  • How will Trump’s administration and Brexit affect arbitrations globally going forward?
  • 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?
  • 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?
  • What are the proposed changes in recent treaties (e.g., CAC clause embedded)?
