Caline Mouawad to speak at Seventeenth Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration

Where Advocacy Meets Business

October 2023— Chaffetz Lindsey’s Caline Mouawad will speak at the upcoming Seventeenth Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference on Thursday, October 12th in Washington, DC. The four-panel program will feature leading arbitration practitioners and scholars who will tackle important questions of international investment law and arbitration.

The program format will focus on eight talented ITA “rising superstars” from all over the world, each taking a side in arguing one of four contentious issues. Each author will present and outline their argument papers, after which a panel of experienced and distinguished professionals will debate and discuss the positions taken by the authors and the issue more generally.

Caline will join the first panel of the day for the following discussion: “This coming December, the withdrawal of France, Germany, and Poland from the Energy Charter Treaty will take effect. Leaders in each of these states claimed withdrawal was necessary because ECT obligations were hindering efforts to combat anthropomorphic-driven climate change. Was this stated justification correct as a matter of international investment law?” The following individuals will participate in the panel:

Ian Laird (Crowell & Moring LLP)

Correct: Lauren Blanchard (Crowell & Moring LLP)
Incorrect: Dominique S. Jones (Debevoise & Plimpton)

Mélida Hodgson (Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP)
Rahim Moloo (Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP)
Caline Mouawad (Chaffetz Lindsey LLP)
Todd Weiler (Independent Arbitrator & IIDS Expert)
