CPR Annual Meeting 2022 - Panel 1

Panel 1: Creating Leverage: How Tech Companies Can Use Investment Treaties to Mitigate Regulatory Risk

The technology sector is increasingly in the crosshairs of foreign regulators. Tech companies are not, however, without tools to mitigate the risk of inappropriate foreign regulatory interference. International arbitration against foreign governments under investment treaties is one such tool. Even the threat of an investment treaty claim can provide meaningful leverage in negotiations with governments. This panel will discuss how technology companies can use investment treaties to mitigate regulatory risk, covering topics including: how can technology companies qualify for investment treaty protection, how do investment treaties protect investors, and how do investors enforce their rights under investment treaties.
