Breakfast for NYIAC Individual Members: ‘The TPP Over Tea’

Event Date: February 24, 2016
Location: NYIAC, 150 E. 42nd Street, 17 FL

8:30am – 10:00am

Signed on February 4, 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (once in force) will cover a market of 800 million people representing 40% of global GDP.  In the face of extreme opposition to investment protections in Europe and elsewhere, the TPP represents a reaffirmation of a multilateral approach to establishing minimum investment protection standards and of access by investors to arbitration to enforce those rights.

In this NYIAC breakfast seminar, James Hosking of Chaffetz Lindsey LLP provides an overview of the key provisions of the TTP, how it differs from existing treaties, and what it suggests about the future of investor-state dispute settlement
