Live audio webinar: Protecting your investments from political risk in a volatile world – 21 June 2017 – 1.00pm UK time

In this webinar, we will offer a disputes perspective on how to protect your investments from political risk in the current economic and political climate. Disputes lawyers are often brought on board when things have already gone wrong, tasked with limiting the fallout, managing a crisis or resolving a dispute formally or informally. However, we know what can go wrong and can therefore offer insight into what might have been done at the outset to reduce the chance of a dispute arising in the first place. We know what we need to build a solid claim and what would or could have made our client's position in any dispute stronger.

In this webinar our panel will explore what we mean by "political risk" before looking at ways that risk can be mitigated. The topics our speakers will explore include:

  • Looking beyond the transaction: protecting your future position whilst negotiating
  • Contractual protections
  • Investment structuring to benefit from investment treaties
  • Political risk insurance: coverage, wordings and maximising policy response
  • Steps to protect yourself when an investment turns sour

Finally, we will talk through some practical points which can really aid a client’s position if and when a dispute does arise.
