Investment Treaty Arbitration

Enyo Law’s international arbitration group is experienced in representing both investors and States in arbitrations under international investment treaties (including bilateral investment treaties and the Energy Charter Treaty).

Our multilingual team has experience of investment treaty arbitrations under the auspices of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), as well as under the arbitration rules of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), and the International Court of Arbitration (ICC).

As an independent firm, Enyo Law has the agility required to assemble, on very short notice, bespoke teams of lawyers. Our team comprises both individuals with backgrounds in public international law, and in private law. We are able to work in partnership with other law firms, leading legal scholars and barristers across jurisdictions. Our aim is to offer bespoke, high-quality, legal services, in the most cost-effective manner.

Enyo Law’s independence also allows us on occasion to make alternative fee arrangements applicable to clients’ financial needs. We are also able to advise on the availability of third-party funding for investment claims, and frequently do so.

We also represent clients in connection with the enforcement of investment treaty arbitration awards.

  • Acting for IMC Invest in an ICSID arbitration against the Kyrgyz Republic under the US – Kyrgyzstan BIT arising out of a ban on uranium mining.
