Webinar: Managing the impact of Russian countermeasures

– investment treaty protections for foreign companies

I samarbete med Mannheimer Swartling Advokatbyrå bjuds Handelskammarens medlemsföretag in till denna digitala liveuppdatering där de ryska motåtgärderna belyses och hur de påverkar utländska företag med investeringar i Ryssland. Uppdateringen är kostnadsfri och hålls på engelska.

”Swedish and other foreign companies operating in Russia are now navigating a rapidly changing legal landscape. Russia has responded to Western sanctions following the war in Ukraine with countermeasures that may have far-reaching implications for foreign-owned companies in Russia. Such countermeasures risk breaching Russia’s commitments under international investment treaties.

As part of their wider response strategy, companies may therefore consider whether they can bring legal proceedings directly against the Russian state for failing to uphold these foreign investment protections, and the practical consequences of doing so.

This seminar will provide an overview of foreign investment protections, in particular under the Sweden-Russia Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT), legal and practical considerations of initiating investor-state arbitration against Russia, and outline key steps to preserve your company’s options.”
