AIPN Event "Arbitration Strategy and Funding"

London, 18 October 2017

Calunius chairman Leslie Perrin will participate in a panel discussion on "Arbitration Strategy and Funding" hosted by the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN). The last several years have witnessed a tremendous increase in the participation of third-party funders in both international commercial and investor-state arbitration. Now more than ever, claimants are seeking external funding, either because they lack the necessary funds to commence arbitration proceedings or because they want to sustain cash-flow and offset the risk of uncertain arbitration outcomes. The panel will discuss the hotly debated topics associated with third-party funding and provide an update on the latest funding products in the market.
