Third party funding in international arbitration has become one of the industries of major growth in recent years, which, besides the ethical questions posed by some countries, also poses other advantages and disadvantages. Even in Latin America, third-party funding has gradually become a more widely used tool in both funding for arbitration and litigation. Currently, it is relevant to take a moment to identify the advantages and disadvantages of this industry, considering the current economic situation faced by several companies due to the COVID-19 effects.
