Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to invite you to join our international arbitration team and distinguished guest speakers on Wednesday 7 September, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for a topical discussion on international arbitration and crime.

The panellists will debate some of the most pressing issues concerning the interaction of international arbitration and criminal allegations or proceedings, including the power of ICSID tribunals to enjoin domestic criminal proceedings, the conduct of parallel arbitral and criminal proceedings, and the evidentiary challenges of proving bribery and corruption allegations in arbitration.

The forum will be followed by a drinks reception from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Geoffrey Robertson QC and Edward Fitzgerald QC, joint heads of Doughty Street Chambers, will moderate two panels of distinguished commercial and investment treaty arbitration counsel, including:
