It has been a time of change for the investment climate in India – driven in large part by recent and very significant changes in the political climate in India, changing attitude of the Indian courts and an increasing willingness of foreign investors to take on the Indian state.

In this webinar, our speakers will draw from their knowledge and experience to discuss their views of some of the opportunities and challenges for investors into India, and in particular the role played by Indian law, the Indian courts and the Indian arbitration system. As always, the stability and efficiency of the Indian legal regime will be critical to converting optimism and interest into investment and economic growth. Our speakers will review the current legal climate in India, recent decisions impacting on the use of courts and arbitration both in India and outside India, and best practice for parties looking to maximise protection for their inbound investment. They will also consider the recent spate of investment treaty arbitrations launched against India and what this may mean for the resolution of current and future disputes with the Indian state.
