Foley Hoag LLP partner Tafadzwa Pasipanodya will be a featured speaker at the 13th annual Investment Treaty Arbitration Juris Conference in Washington, D.C., on April 8, 2019. 

This event brings together academics, government employees and corporate counsel for high-level discussions surrounding the latest developments in investor state arbitration. 

Pasipanodya will participate in the panel “Corruption after Establishment: Should It Disqualify Otherwise Meritorious Claims?” She will address the use of corruption as a jurisdictional objection, an admissibility question and a defense on the merits in international arbitration, and also discuss the question of parallel proceedings on corruption.

As a member of Foley Hoag’s International Litigation and Arbitration Department, Pasipanodya represents sovereign States in contentious and advisory matters concerning international law. Her practice is focused on advising States in investor-State arbitrations and State-to-State disputes concerning mineral resources, environmental harm, territorial and maritime claims, as well as human rights.
