Join the Europe-Africa Chapter for a panel discussion on "Arbitration Strategy and Funding". 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.

Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the panel discussion at 6:00 p.m., followed by a networking drinks reception at 7:00 p.m.

Online registration is now closed. On-site registration will be on a space available basis, and is complimentary for members, non-members, and students.
