Shaparak Saleh will speak at the “Fund Time” breakfast panel organised by Paris Arbitration Centre, By Delos as part of Paris Arbitration Week 2024.

The session, to be hosted by Profile Investment (Pi) founder, Iain C. McKenny, will feature a panel of distinguished guests with “real time” experience of litigation financing who will engage in a no holds barred debate on the pros and cons of working with funders discussing issues such as:

  • “Is the relationship between law and finance, parasitic or symbiotic?”;
  • “Does litigation financing deter reasonable settlement?”;
  • “Are law firms service providers and if so, is the rise of the hybrid law firm/fund desirable or inevitable?”; and
  • “Does disclosure of litigation financing have an unspoken impact on quantum?”

The event will take place on Wednesday 20 March from 8:30 am to 10:30 am at the Paris Arbitration Centre.
