Logistics Infrastructure BIT Arbitration

The Case

An investor-state claim arising from expropriation of the claimant’s investment in a port facility. During the course of the proceedings, the respondent brought collateral proceedings in the U.S. in an attempt to frustrate the main action.

Why It’s Significant

Therium’s Solution

Therium’s funding enabled the claimant’s lawyers to successfully resist the US proceeding and ensure the continuation of the treaty claim.
