On October 8, 2014 Professor Shannon presented a lunchtime talk on the topic “Attorney Ethics for Third Party Funding in International Arbitration” at the Washington, D.C. office of Freshfields, a premier global law firm that specializes in international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration.

Attorneys in the firm’s New York office attended her talk via videoconference.  Professor Shannon gave advice on how to handle the ethical issues that may arise in both international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration when an attorney represents a funded client or when an arbitrator hears a case involving one or more funded parties.
