Continuing with our one-of-a-kind flagship Webinar series on Bilateral Investment Treaty / Investor-State Disputes, with experts such as Salim Moollan QC, Toby Landau QC, Michael Hwang, SC, Gary Born, we are thrilled to announce that recently we had the opportunity to interact with investment arbitration expert, Dr. Hamid Gharavi in Paris, on the sidelines of Paris Arbitration Week.

Judicial expropriation has been used synonymously with denial of justice in investor-state disputes and the standards remain blur. There is hardly any jurisprudence on the topic despite being widely debated and discussed in certain landmark rulings. In the fifth episode of this series, we look forward to understanding the concept of ‘judicial expropriation’ and standards for its application. The interview will try to explain the differences and remove the confusion caused due to certain ICSID rulings, thresholds and standards applicable in case of denial of justice and judicial expropriation.

Payel Chatterjee and Sahil Kanuga of Nishith Desai Associates had an interesting conversation with Dr. Gharavi on ‘judicial expropriation’ and its implications on bilateral investment treaty disputes during the Paris Arbitration Week, 2019.
