Investor State, Commercial Arbitrations, and International Courts

NERA’s experts are retained in international disputes related to commercial agreements, bilateral investment treaties whereby companies that are foreign investors sue a government of a country regarding the foreign direct investment. 


Our consultants draw on decades of experience, combined with specialized knowledge and deep expertise in regulated industries and competitive markets. NERA economists have provided these services in major arbitration venues around the world, including the US, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.
