Protecting investments and investment arbitration — What should every company investing abroad know about it?

The world has changed dramatically during 2022. State actions in many parts of the world have taken centre stage and affected Finnish foreign investments. The legal protection of investments abroad is crucial, and it involves recourse to investment arbitration. It is in this context that we will ask our guest speakers Laura Halonen (Of Counsel, WAGNER Arbitration, Berlin), Kimmo Sinivuori (Commercial Counsellor, Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland), and Timo Vuori (Director, Confederation of Finnish Industries) the following questions:

  • What mechanisms are there for investment protection, and how does Finland participate in improving investment protection abroad?
  • What can Finnish companies do, and what do they do to protect investments abroad?
  • Is investment arbitration the ultimate safeguard against unfair treatment from states?
  • Is Finland likely to face claims for its own policy choices?

You are welcome to join our Dispute Resolution Seminar on Tuesday 15 November 2022 from 08:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (EET), either in person or online, where you will have an opportunity to listen to what the experts from Finland and abroad have to say about this. The discussion will be moderated by Anna-Maria Tamminen and Ricardo Gomes from our Dispute Resolution Team.
