Damages Based Agreements and Defendants: Retaining is not Obtaining

Olivia de Patoul and David Walker of Deminor welcome the ICSID rules that came into force on 1 July 2022 but voice their concern with the power granted to an ICSID tribunal to request additional information on the content of any funding agreement once the notice of funding has been filed, arguing that, among other reasons, if the tribunal is aware of the funding conditions agreed to by the funded party, or the funded party’s settlement thresholds, it could affect the tribunal’s view of the case or even its impartiality.
