Panel I: Tackling third party funding in arbitration – Beyond pitfalls and towards a working regime?

While the popularity of third-party funding has met with some scepticism owing to the lack of judicial certainty domestically, parties remain open to the financial lifeline that both conditional fees and damages-based remuneration models offer to resolve complex and potentially expensive disputes. The discussion will begin by assessing the current regime of third-party funding and delve into the key considerations for investors and companies to evaluate funding options and propose the required reforms. The speakers will share insights and practical examples of the push points to be assessed for third party funding options in specific sectors and the impact of third-party funding in ensuring access to justice.
