HKIAC introduced provisions in its 2018 Administered Arbitration Rules to reflect the opening up of the third party funding market in Hong Kong and the wider Asia-Pacific region. With the onset of Covid-19, what does the funding market look like today? Are cash strapped organisations in the region able to seek funding to enforce legal rights, and what is the likelihood of recovery in the current climate?
This webinar is particularly relevant for those who are facing immediate questions about seeking funding for a claim, how best to maximise recovery, and how existing funding arrangements might be affected by COVID-19.
