Economic sanctions have become an increasingly significant foreign policy tool that have the clear, and intended, impact of interfering with global trade. Sanctions have not only given rise to commercial and investment disputes, many of which may be submitted to international arbitration, but the process of international arbitration has been affected as parties, arbitrators, arbitral institutions, third-party funders and others continue to be confronted with often challenging questions relating to the application of economic sanctions to a dispute.
BIICL and Latham & Watkins are convening a roundtable to discuss practical issues and experiences arising from the impact of economic sanctions on international arbitration. This will include discussion of, amongst other topics:
- The impact of sanctions on international arbitration, including the perspective of the LCIA
- Risks related to Russian parties avoiding arbitration clauses by bringing litigation before the Russian courts
- Risks related to the enforcement of Russian court judgments, the perspective from Poland
- Remedies under bilateral investment treaties
The roundtable is intended to provide a forum for attendees to actively participate and share experiences and insights on this highly topical issue.
