The Eleventh Annual Juris Conferences’ Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference will tackle the complex developments raised by investor-state arbitration and its intersection with international investments in the technology sector. Although there have only been a few investment cases touching on issues related to the technology sector, with continued international integration and the rise of product piracy, counterfeiting, issues related to IP rights, cybersecurity, and the internet of things, international trade and investment disputes may be inevitable in the years to come. A group of eight authors again take contrary positions and grapple with the dramatic developments of investment arbitration as it relates to technology, intellectual property and investor-state arbitration. The expert faculty will then continue the debate following the original contributions from the authors for what always proves to be highly entertaining. This conference will be of great value to practitioners, industry counsel, and academics alike who are interested in these important cutting-edge issues.

International Dispute Resolution Group Partner Ian Laird is co-chairing the conference. International Dispute Resolution Group Associate Jan Janssen is authoring a paper to be presented during a session entitled “The Industry panel – What role is there for international law in the protection of IP in the technology sector?

Crowell & Moring is a sponsor.
