TDM Editorial: “Anish Wadia and Shivani Rawat have demonstrated the permissibility and enforceability of third-party funding in India since 1876 by engaging in an exhaustive analysis of relevant judicial authorities. This is followed by a comprehensive dialogue on all major aspects of third-party funding in international commercial and investment arbitration, including disclosure norms and FEMA. The authors have proposed a viable regulatory framework for India inspired by best practices from other jurisdictions.” – https://bit.ly/2utPSW8

The Times of India (Sunday, 24 February 2019): “Advocates Anish Wadia and Shivani Rawat, in a 201[8] paper, traced permissibility of TPF to an 1876 judgement. Wadia said “amendments to [the] Civil Procedure Code for Maharashtra by the Bombay [High Court] in 1983 acknowledged the permissibility of TPF by including measures for security for costs awarded against the funded claimant. Few other states had followed suit to ensure securing costs from TP funders. TPF holds significant potential and its success would pave way for traditional modes like litigation.”” – https://bit.ly/2tzO4ua
