Allen & Overy’s Jeffrey Sullivan set to speak at the Energy Charter Treaty Conference
Allen & Overy’s Jeffrey Sullivan is speaking at the Energy Charter Treaty Conference, ‘20 Years of the Energy Charter Treaty’, on 7 March in Paris. The conference is sponsored by the Energy Charter Secretariat, the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes and the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
Allen & Overy acted in the first arbitration brought under the Energy Charter Treaty 14 years ago and is currently acting in six separate arbitrations brought under the treaty.
The Energy Charter Treaty is a multilateral treaty created with the aim of opening energy markets in its member states by establishing a legal framework to liberalise trade and investment and to minimise associated risks.
