The European Court of Justice’s judgement in Slovak Republic v. Achmea has caught the attention of practitioners worldwide, with the court ruling that the arbitration clause contained in a bilateral investment treaty signed between EU countries would be incompatible with EU law.
Please join us for a discussion on the impact and consequences of the decision, as well as practical aspects and concerns that investors and lawyers should consider regarding current and future investments involving the EU. The discussion will include consideration of the fate of pending arbitrations, as well as a conversation on how protection might best be secured for new investments. The discussion will be followed by an Oxford-style debate, “Achmea Decision: Did the ECJ Get it Right?”
The speakers, Raquel Macedo, Dimitrios Papageorgiou, Elena-Mihaela Gheorghe, Marine Koenig, are part of a group of young practitioners from the 2018-2019 Young ICCA Mentoring programme, currently being mentored by Skadden partner Dr. Anke Sessler.
