Recently there has been a marked increase in the number of procedural applications in investment arbitration which may have a significant strategic impact on the direction of an arbitration.

In the light of the increasing use of procedural tools, this event will consider the existing use and prospects for increasing use of the following strategic applications and tactics in investment arbitration:

  • applications for security for costs;
  • disclosure of third party funding;
  • rule 41(5) applications; and
  • the use of settlement offers.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception, kindly sponsored by Dentons
