On 1 March 2017, various statutory amendments took effect, thereby introducing third-party funding into the Singapore legal landscape.

 

This event is therefore timely for bringing together experts, with different perspectives of third-party funding, to provide legal practitioners not only with an understanding of the underlying legislative framework, but also a practical guide to third-party funding.

 

With introductory remarks by the Honourable Judge of Appeal Steven Chong, this event will cover a broad range of practice-related issues, such as:

 

  •  The advantages and disadvantages to client and counsel of working on funded matter;
  •  Ethical issues regarding third-party funding, with particular regard to the Legal Profession Professional Conduct Rules, the Law Society's guidelines and other relevant guidelines;
  •  The implications of third-party funding on asserting legal privilege, confidentiality and conflicts of interest; and
  •  How to apply for third-party funding, as well as the types of cases where funding might be useful.
