Especially in the current economic climate, but also more generally, companies are looking for ways to reduce costs and capitalise on assets. How can they do that in the context of a dispute? What about when that dispute arises out of the unlawful actions of a government? In this seminar we will explore the idea of third party funding, what it is, how it works and what it means for companies who are looking to use it, particularly in the context of claims arising out of bilateral investment treaties.
