ICC YAF: Stakeholders’ perspectives on third-party funding – a case study

06 Apr 2022

Prague English
17.00 (CET)

ICC YAF together with the YCAP (Young Czech Arbitration Professionals) are jointly organizing a discussion on the role of third-party funding (TPF) in international arbitration on the eve of ICC Prague Arbitration Day 2022.

In the last years, TPF has rapidly developed as a means for an impecunious party to access justice as well as a convenient risk-sharing mechanism for cash-rich companies. Despite this devolvement, TPF remains a black box for many professionals. We will discuss TPF in a practical format of a case study from the angles of different stakeholders.

Who should attend?

  • Young lawyers specialising in dispute resolution
  • in-house counsel with an interest in arbitration
  • (upcoming) arbitrators and
  • experts involved in arbitration.
