ICCA is pleased to announce the launch of a Taskforce on Third-Party Funding in International Arbitration, which will be conducted jointly with a new Centre on Ethics, Regulation and Rule of Law at Queen Mary, University of London. The Taskforce will be co-chaired by ICCA Governing Board Member William W. Park and Professor Catherine Rogers, the Chair of the new Centre and Professor of Law and International Affairs at Penn State Law. Professor Stavros Brekoulakis, Professor in International Arbitration and Commercial Law at Queen Mary, will be the Rapporteur for the project.
