Foley Hoag Attorneys Kenneth Juan Figueroa and Analia Gonzalez to Participate at ILW 2018

October 17, 2018

Foley Hoag LLP partner Kenneth Juan Figueroa and international counsel Analia González will participate in the 2018 International Law Weekend (ILW 2018), to be held October 18-20, 2018 in New York City. This year’s theme is “Why International Law Matters.”

Figueroa will moderate and González will speak on a panel titled “Investor-State Dispute Settlement: A Brave New World or The Clock that Went Backward?” The panel will examine the recent changes being proposed to the investor-state dispute settlement system and compare those proposals with historic models in international law. 

ILW 2018 is sponsored and organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA). This annual event attracts an audience of more than one thousand academics, practitioners, diplomats, members of governmental and nongovernmental organizations, and law students.

Figueroa focuses his practice on international disputes, particularly on investor-State matters, commercial arbitration, and sovereign representation. He represents foreign States, State-owned entities, and private companies before U.S. federal courts and international arbitral tribunals.

González represents clients before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the ICJ, and in ad hoc arbitrations under UNCITRAL, in cases concerning the environment, energy, and public health, among others.
