Third Party Funding draft report: public comment from September 2017


The draft report of the ICCA-Queen Mary Task Force on Third Party Funding in International Arbitration will be made available for public comment from 1 September - 15 October 2017. The draft will be posted for comment on ICCA's website (www.arbitration-icca.org). The Task Force Co-Chairs, Professor Catherine Rogers, Professor Stavros Brekoulakis and ICCA Governing Board member Professor W.W. (Rusty) Park, look forward to engaging with public comment on the draft, which will include chapters on the impact of third party funding on costs and security for costs, attorney-client privilege, and conflicts, together with overarching chapters on definitions and best practices. In the lead up to the launch of the final report at the ICCA Congress in Sydney in April 2018, the Task Force will also be discussing the draft report with representatives of the insurance industry, maritime arbitration practitioners and other international arbitration experts.
