 About the topic:

The TPP negotiations are set to conclude later this year, following the US Congress’ decision to grant fast-track authority to President Obama. 

One of the thorniest issues in those negotiations is the investment chapter, which is likely to provide a mechanism for US and other investors to sue the New Zealand Government for breach of international investment rules.  Why include this mechanism?  How novel is it?  How risky is it for the Government?  Should it cause New Zealand to rethink its participation in the TPP? 

Daniel Kalderimis will discuss current issues in investor-state claims and offer accessible thoughts on what the TPP investment chapter may mean for New Zealand.   

About the speaker:

Daniel Kalderimis is a litigation partner at Chapman Tripp and is a recognised expert in international investment law. He has appeared as counsel in the only investor-state case heard in New Zealand.
