London Disputes Seminar: Alternative Fee Structures and Funding

Tuesday, June 2, 2015
08:30 AM - 10:30 AM MSK

Not long ago, contingency fees were still illegal in the UK. All that has changed now. Lawyers can take a share of the outcome, and specialist funders are investing in big cases.

Please join partners from our London and Moscow offices for an interactive session where we will discuss the often complex rules governing alternative fee arrangements that are newly available for London disputes. Our presenters will also examine the considerations affecting which type of arrangements may be suitable for specific cases or clients, as well as providing an overview of the alternative funding products increasingly available in London.

Topics will include:

  • The traditional English approach for litigation and arbitration
  • Damage-Based Agreements – the English contingency fee
  • Conditional Fee Agreements – an alternative leveraged fee structure
  • Litigation Funding – alternate sources of specialist funding for London cases
  • Application of alternative funding to arbitrations in England (LCIA and others)

8:30 - 9:00 AM | Registration and breakfast
