September 7 (Friday)

Economic Sanctions and International Arbitration. Hosted in Brussels, Belgium, will discuss practicalities of ICC dispute resolution tools due to international sanctions exposure used as a tool of foreign policy and international economic governance more than ever before. For instance, the United States’ recent decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal. As a result of the latter, companies review existing agreements with Iranian counter parties, or that involve Iran-related activities, and assess what steps may be required to terminate the agreements. But exiting agreements can mean facing risks of litigation for breach of contract. This sanctions regime is equally applicable to all dispute resolution institutions notably in the EU, Switzerland and the United States. Learn more>>
