International investment disputes, nationality and corporate veil: some insights from Tokios Tokelés and TSA Spectrum de Argentina

March 17, 2011

We are happy to annouce the publication of an peer-reviewed article taking into consideration the issue of investors’ nationality in foreign direct investments, or more specifically, the issue of abuses of corporate structures in transnational investment deals. The article compares the facts in two ICSID cases, Tokios Tokelés v Ukraine and TSA Spectrum v Argentina, where ICSID tribunals had to choose between the place of incorporation of the entity and the controling nationality of the investors (corporate veil piercing) to establish ‘foreign control’ and the Centre’s jurisdiction. The Phoenix Action v Czech Republic is also cited because of its insights on “bona fide” investments.
