Wells is part of Fishman Haygood’s international arbitration team, which handles a number of disputes arising under bilateral investment treaties (“BIT”s). Sovereign nations enter BITs to protect investors of their country who make investments in their partner country under the treaty. In such matters, the firm represents claimant construction companies in confidential arbitrations against respondent sovereign nations who expropriated or otherwise impaired the claimant’s investment within respondent’s borders in violation of the applicable BIT. Read about the team’s recent trip to the Hague.
