On May 13, 2019, our Israel Group co-hosted a breakfast event focused on investment arbitration in collaboration with leading Israeli law firm Epstein Rosenblum Maoz (ERM). We were privileged to be joined by our colleagues Michael Ostrove (Global Co-Chair of the firm’s International Arbitration practice) and Ben Sanderson (Practice Manager of the International Arbitration practice), who provided an overview on how investments can be protected and how Israeli investors can use international law mechanisms to seek redress when an investment turns sour.

Topics discussed included (i) protecting foreign investment – the key advantages and pitfalls; (ii) access to investment treaty protection; (iii) scope of protection; (iv) best practices for Israeli investors; (v) enforcement of arbitral awards in Israel; and (vi) Israeli Sovereign Immunity Law.
