Third-Party Funding in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration, Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Annual Conference

April 3, 2018
4:00 - 5:00 PM (EST)

Mark Bravin will be speaking on, "Third-Party Funding in International Commercial
and Investment Arbitration," at the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) 2018 Annual Conference. This session will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. 

As international commercial and investment arbitration keep growing, so does the demand by private parties and sovereign states to find creative and financially conservative means to fund their cases. Third-party funding − as an industry that may currently exceed billions of dollars − offers innovative ways to finance arbitrations for parties that might otherwise be unable to fund their own
cases, or to ensure appropriate representation due to insufficient funding. While third-party funding influences the contours of international arbitration, as a legal concept such funding involves contentious issues. This panel will discuss the
process that a third-party funder follows to decide on the financing of a case, the adequacy of disclosure that a case is being funded, the issue of conflicts of interest concerning third-party funding, and past and potential means
available to sovereign states to fund their cases.
