Място на провеждане

Central Park Hotel, Sofia, Vitosha bul. 106



The seminar will cover the topic of third-party funding in international arbitration disputes. Third-party funding is a relatively new practice that typically involves a third party financing an arbitration for parties that wish to initiate international legal proceedings. 

The seminar will examine the topic of third-party funding from various perspectives, including those of third-party funders, parties, counsel, arbitrators and arbitral institutions.  In so doing, the seminar will aim to answer questions such as:

•    How do third-party funders operate, and what type of investments are they willing to make?
•    What are the key principles used by third-party funders to determine the realistic damages at stake?
•    What are the contractual and legal implications parties should bear in mind when negotiating contracts for third-party funding?
•    What legal and ethical issues arise in connection with third-party funding?        
•    How to these legal and ethical issues affect arbitral practice (e.g., disclosure requirements, cost allocation)?
•    What issues does third-party funding raise for the enforcement of arbitral awards?
