Litigation Regarding Renewable Energy Investments Seminar

Date: 11/18/2015
The explosive growth of the renewable energy market in Romania was followed by a collapse that was just as spectacular, when the Romanian government withdrew its support in this area. Investors lost billions of euros.

This practical seminar hands you the necessary instruments to reclaim your lost investments. Investments with a foreign component benefit from protection against unforeseeable legislative modifications by the Romanian State.

The main speaker of the event, Anna de Luca, Ph.D., esq., is an international expert and teaches at Bocconi, the most prestigious business university of Italy.

The seminar will be held with a small audience of maximum 25 participants, so that each attendant may receive the necessary answers to his or her particular questions.

  • Case studies from other countries (class actions and other litigation)
  • Recent developments in arbitration between investors and states (for example regarding the Energy Charter, ICSID, BIT)
  • Measures to be taken to get the protection of the Treaties
  • Cost and other practical aspects
  • Analysis of the legislative changes in Romania that influence the renewables market
  • Future arbitration instruments related to the development of EU legislation
Participants are encouraged to discuss their experiences and to ask advice about their specific situation.
