No. of Public CPD Points: 1.5
Practice Area: International Law
Training Level: General

 

About the Programme

Foreign investments into Singapore and Singaporean investments abroad are likely to be impacted by governmental measures seeking to manage and prevent the spread of Covid-19.  These investments may be protected by bilateral investment treaties (BITs) or free trade agreements (FTAs), which may grant investors direct arbitration rights against a government that breaches these protections.

This webinar will examine:

  • the extent to which an investor may rely on these protections when its foreign investments are affected by measures related to Covid-19; and
  • the international law defences available to a government in the event a foreign investor claims that its investments have been subjected to Covid-19 measures that violate available BIT or FTA investment protections.

Speakers

  • Dr Romesh Weeramantry – Counsel, Clifford Chance (Singapore)
  • Nicholas Lingard – Partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Singapore
  • Professor Chester Brown – Professor, University of Sydney Law School; Barrister, 7 Wentworth Selborne Chambers and Essex Court Chambers
