Jef Klazen Explores Arbitral Award Enforcement Against Sovereigns During 2023 Paris Arbitration Week

March 30, 2023

More global investors are engaging in investor-state arbitration to resolve disputes, but the trouble often begins once they win an award. Many sovereigns deploy their unique powers to do everything they can to avoid payment, so investors need to think creatively if they want to successfully enforce their arbitral award. Kobre & Kim’s Jef Klazen, who focuses on international asset recovery and the enforcement of judgments and awards, discusses during the Paris Arbitration Week on a session at 10:00 am local time, March 31, 2023.

The session, “Enforcement Against Sovereigns: A Case Study,” focuses on key strategic considerations and other insights for investors and practitioners as they seek to enforce an award against a sovereign. The session will be hosted by Jacques-Alexandre Genet of Archipel, and Mr. Klazen will be joined by Hakim Boularbah of Loyens & Loeff and Sebastian Neave of J.S. Held LLC.
