Our risk and regulation experts work with clients to address the impact of new regulatory requirements and to seize market and competitive opportunities arising from regulatory change.

Bilateral Investment Treaties. Since Germany and Pakistan negotiated the first modern bilateral investment treaty in 1959, more than 3,000 trade and investment agreements have been concluded among 180 countries to protect foreign investment. Many of these agreements contain a mechanism called “investor-state dispute settlement” (ISDS), which enables a foreign investor to invoke arbitration against a host government for the breach of certain investor protections. Our leadership team, dedicated industry experts, and senior advisors understand the unique challenges that institutional investors face and work together to develop innovative solutions and help create lasting impact. We work with a diverse set of clients, including pension funds, endowments, and sovereign wealth funds.
