Our expertise

We advise States and investors on investment protection (e.g. Energy Charter Treaty (ECT), bilateral investment treaties) and act as counsel in investment arbitrations (ICSID, ICC, SCC, UNCITRAL).

Furthermore, we resolve investor-State disputes as arbitrators.

In addition, we act as experts on specific issues of international law (e.g. immunity, lump sum agreements).

From 2013 to 2019, Dr. Inka Hanefeld was nominated by the Federal Republic of Germany to the ICSID list of arbitrators and has served as arbitrator and member of ICSID annulment committees in numerous investor-State arbitrations.
