Is third-party funding permitted for arbitrations seated in your jurisdiction?
Both the PILA and the CPC are silent with regard to third-party funding and there are no rules or restrictions on third-party funders in Switzerland. According to Swiss Federal Tribunal case law, third-party funding is, as a rule, admissible. However, third-party funders must respect certain limitations on interfering with the client-attorney relationship and avoid any conflict of interest.
