    Why US Investors should Invest in Europe Now: Innovative Financing Models are Generating Profits & Impact

    Orrick New York: 51 West 52nd Street (The CBS Building), New York, NY 10019

    Join us for a presentation about the innovative investment models the EU Commission together with the European Investment Bank have established to attract private monies for public good AND to help investors generate profits and measurable impact. Investors increasingly seek investment opportunities with verifiable societal impact (e.g. green or social). In the years to come, we can expect the importance of the sector to grow further as globally, USD 24 trillion will be transferred from the generation of baby boomers to millennials, who are on average much more inclined to invest “with impact”. To provide investors with such investment opportunities, the public and private sectors can strategically cooperate.

    Using Construction Contracts to Limit Time-Consuming Discovery in Arbitration

    European American Chamber of Commerce New York: The New York Times Building, 620 Eighth Avenue, 37th Fl., New York, NY 10018

    A hallmark of arbitration in the United States has been a limited discovery process. But, construction litigators know that a “limited discovery process” rarely means that there will be no discovery in the arbitration. In the current fast-paced, document-reliant construction environment, extensive e-discovery is often needed to fully understand the merits of a case, because many project teams rely heavily upon electronic project management systems and email communications to document and provide insight (and a time stamp) for a multitude of decisions made on a daily basis. Therefore, the potential for staggering costs and extensive delays that often accompany typical document discovery are present in all but the simplest of construction disputes.
