Webinar | Achmea Three Years On and Around the World

16 June 2021
3:30 PM

Bouke Boersma, Counsel at Houthoff, will co-host the webinar Achmea Three Years on and Around the World on Wednesday 16 June 2021 in collaboration with the New York State Bar Association.

Three years after the Court of Justice of the European Union’s Achmea decision, which held that the arbitration agreement in the Netherlands-Slovakia bilateral investment treaty (BIT) was incompatible with EU law, the future of investment arbitration on the basis of intra-EU BITs and the Energy Charter Treaty is a subject of continuing debate.

The webinar will consider the latest developments following Achmea, its actual consequences for investor-state arbitration, its reception outside of the EU, and possible future developments in this area of law, including in the wake of Brexit, through a cross-Atlantic conversation between practitioners and arbitrators based in Europe and the United States.

This webinar is sponsored by the International Section of the New York State Bar Association, the European Federation for Investment Law and Arbitration (EFILA), and the New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC).

Confirmed panelists are:
  • Bouke Boersma | Houthoff, New York & Amsterdam
  • Veronika Korom | Queritius, Paris & Budapest
  • Carlos Ramos-Mrosovsky | Alston & Bird, New York
  • Christopher Vajda QC | Monckton Chambers, former Judge of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland at the Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) from 2012
  • Saadia Bhatty | Gide Loyrette Nouel, London

Language: English. Time of the event is 09:30 AM - 10:45 AM (EST), 3:30 PM - 4:45 PM (CEST).
