Legal and Commercial Insights from a Third Party Funder

Third party funding plays an increasingly important role in financing arbitration and litigation proceedings. Yet many jurists are not familiar with the decision-making processes behind funding decisions. Thomas Kohlmeier's workshop aims to change this. Using this year's Vis Moot case as an example, the workshop will show how a third party funder approaches funding applications and makes its funding decisions. He will also address how recent developments could change such decision-making processes.
Thomas Kohlmeier is co-founder of Nivalion – one of the leading providers of legal finance solutions in Europe and beyond. He is the firm’s Co-CEO and responsible for Nivalion’s secondary market transactions. Mr. Kohlmeier has over 20 years’ experience in litigation funding and was a member of the Executive Board of Legial AG, part of Munich Re.
