Event description

Description

Based on newly-released empirical findings, our guest speaker, Professor Georges Affaki, will explore in his lecture the reality of arbitration in banking and financial matters today.

He will make the case for a differentiated approach according to the particular banking sector where arbitration is contemplated, with a special focus on derivatives, project finance, advisory banking, sovereign lending, and Islamic finance. He will analyse the prospects offered by the opening of investment arbitration to financial instruments and to banking claims, including in relation to confiscatory regulatory actions.

Professor Affaki will critically review various arbitration initiatives dedicated to banking disputes around the world, and offer recommendations to arbitrators and counsel to take into account the reality of banking and finance in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis and the risk approach in international banks towards commercial and investment arbitration.

This evening lecture will be followed by a drinks reception which will provide an invaluable opportunity for participants to share thoughts and network with each other.
