MR. LAIRD: Well, welcome back, everyone. We’ve had an excellent day, three really engaging panels, very enjoyable, and I think you’ll find the last panel will be the icing on the cake. We had an excellent introduction to the topic from Professor Reisman at lunch today, which should provide a little fodder for our panelists and our authors.
So, our panel is Session Number 4, “Burdens and Standard of Proof for Corruption: Is the allegation of claimant corruption by a State sufficient basis on which tribunals may deny an investment claim?” So, that’s our topic, and I’d like to introduce the moderator of our panel.
We have the privilege of having Mr. Stephen Jagusch here today. He’s the global chair of the international arbitration group at Quinn Emanuel, based in its London office. He’s recognized as a leading counsel, an expert in international arbitration, as well as investment arbitration. Amongst his various credentials, he’s a former chair of the investment arbitration committee of the IBA, he’s the chair and founder of the International Arbitration Charity Ball, amongst many other honors and excellent functions. So, it’s a real privilege to have Stephen here today, and I’ll pass it over to you.
