Trends in Investment Arbitration in the Natural Resources Industries in Latin America
Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at 9:00 am PDT, 10:00 am MDT, 11:00 am CDT, 12:00 pm EDT for 1.5 hours
As the region continues to feel the consequences of COVID, and those economies continue to suffer, the exposure to unlawful state action against natural resources investors may increase, in particular in those states where natural resources are a very large component of the country’s GDP. As in other parts of the world, investment arbitration is available to investors in Latin America who are seeking redress for any breaches of international law by the host state where the investments were made. The panelists will address the main treaties applicable in the region, including BITs and the USMCA for Mexico in particular, and turn to explain how investment treaties work, the circumstances under which a claim can be submitted to arbitration, and the practical issues surrounding damages and enforcement actions.
