Can Yeginsu and Calum Mulderrig contribute to new edition of textbook on investor state arbitration

The seventh edition of The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review edited by Barton Legum has been published.

Can Yeginsu and Calum Mulderrig have authored the first chapter of the book, entitled “Covered Investment”.

The chapter analyses the critical threshold jurisdictional question of what constitutes a “covered investment” in investor-state arbitration, and in turn considers the scope of protection afforded to investors under investment treaties.

Both Can Yeginsu and Calum Mulderrig are regularly instructed as Counsel in investment arbitrations, both for investors and for States.

Can also accepts appointments to sit as an arbitrator and is recognised by Who’s Who Legal as ‘very thorough and decisive as arbitrator’.
