Mayer Brown is partnering with ILFA’s Chairman, Leslie Perrin, and Harbour’s Co-founder Susan Dunn, for an exclusive webinar about the newly launched ILFA - the new global trade association devoted to the commercial legal finance industry – and other interesting industry trends. This webinar will cover some key issues affecting the funding of disputes, from both the funder and practitioner perspective.
Leslie Perrin will discuss the ILFA’s objective and its goals and explore what it means for funders and parties using, or looking to use, third-party funding for their disputes. Hear first-hand from Susan Dunn about what parties should be looking for in a funder and the current trends at Harbour since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our Mayer Brown panellists will explore funding issues pertaining to both arbitration and litigation, providing useful insight from their own case experience. They will cover:
- Recent issues relating to funding Investor/State cases
- Global trends, including in emerging markets – the Middle East
- The impact of third party funding on commercial litigation in the UK: in theory and in practice.
The webinar will conclude with some insightful comments from Leslie Perrin and Susan Dunn on the topical issues raised by the Mayer Brown panellists.
