Disputes in the resources sector are steeped in complexity, cost and associated risk. Participants in these types of disputes are increasingly looking for innovative ways to finance the running of these disputes, manage risks and reduce costs. Despite its origins in assisting impecunious claimants obtain access to justice, modern dispute finance is not just for those who cannot pay. Much of the recent growth is driven by well-resourced, financially capable parties simply seeking to shift, or share, the cost and risk of commercial disputes to a third party. This seminar will discuss what dispute finance is and its application to the types of disputes likely to be encountered in the resources sector.
