Investor protection and the courts


African Law and Business, 18/03/2019

The first session at the 2017 ALB Summit opened with a keynote address by Harry Matovu QC of Brick Court Chambers entitled Investor protection, resource nationalism and the courts – straws in the wind. This is an edited summary of that address. Delivering a wide-ranging address, Matovu focused on three key aspects of investor protection in doing business in Africa: the sanctity of contracts, the protection of investors’ rights in local courts and the protection of investors’ rights against the state in the English courts.
