The chapter, “Privilege and Confidentiality,” authored by Walsh and Zachary Krug of Woodsford Litigation Funding offers a comprehensive guide to the issues of privilege and confidentiality that are faced by those utilizing litigation finance on both sides of the Atlantic.
Walsh focuses on high value international commercial arbitration and complex cross-border litigation and has acted for clients in the telecom, private equity, financial, maritime, offshore, power and aviation sectors. Walsh has acted on some of the world’s largest international arbitration disputes in the telecoms sector. He has represented both claimants and defendants in the English high court and in arbitrations under the LCIA, ICC, AAA, UNCITRAL, ICSID, SIAC, LMAA and VIAC rules. He also has extensive experience managing multi-jurisdictional litigation in the offshore courts in Guernsey, Jersey, the Isle of Man, the British Virgin Islands, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands as well as in Europe and Russia. Walsh’s experience extends to restructuring and insolvency matters, and to regulatory and civil/criminal investigations under the U.K. Bribery Act and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Prior to joining Cadwalader, Walsh was Senior Investment Officer with Woodsford Litigation Funding in London, where he was responsible for global litigation and arbitration investments.
The Law and Business of Litigation Finance considers the international development of the law and practice of high value litigation and arbitration funding. It is an essential guide for those who provide or seek such funding, as well as for anyone who wishes to understand the litigation funding process and to avoid pitfalls.
