Legal Trends by Hannes — Episode 4: When Investors Sue Governments — Also in the Nordic Countries

8 June 2021

In the past, the Nordic countries rarely became involved in investor-state disputes. As the times are changing and cases have recently been brought against several Nordic states, we discuss investment arbitration with Laura Halonen of WAGNER Arbitration from Berlin and Pontus Ewerlöf from Hannes Snellman’s Stockholm office. The episode contains thoughts on what in-house counsel should know about investment arbitration and views on what Nordic companies should take into account when considering whether to enforce their rights under various international investment agreements.

Legal Trends by Hannes is a podcast focusing on different phenomena and trends in the legal industry. The first season focuses on global litigation trends and is hosted by our experienced dispute resolution lawyers, Partner Anna-Maria Tamminen and Managing Associate Helen Lehto.
