    by Stavros Brekoulakis, Task Force Rapporteur

    The ICCA-Queen Mary Task Force on Third-Party Funding in International Arbitration convened its second meeting on 6 April 2014 in Miami. At the meeting, the Task Force identified a number of action items concerning important TPF issues. Among the topics designated for action by the Task Force are development of disclosure standards for TPF, and a special initiative to explore the impact of TPF in investment arbitration. The Task Force is also working to develop guidelines on security for costs and costs allocations in arbitration involving TPF arrangements, as well as producing best practices guidelines for funders. These and other topics were presented to and discussed with interested ICCA members at a luncheon on 8 April 2014.
