What this session will cover

Hear from legal practitioners, in-house counsel and government lawyers about the legal and procedural peculiarities to which state involvement in arbitrations and litigations can give rise. The session will be structured as two panels: the first panel will consider state involvement in arbitrations (both investment treaty and commercial); the second will be structured as a question and answer session and will focus on arbitration-related litigation involving states before the English courts.
