We understand and appreciate the role that TPF plays in providing access to justice for those who could otherwise not afford to pursue their claims. Similarly, in a time when cash is king, TPF has a role to play in enabling corporates to resolve their disputes without depleting resources that could be invested profitably elsewhere within the business. Could 2021 become a milestone year for TPF? We hope this publication provides a useful guide for litigants, lawyers and investors alike as we take on the challenges the new year brings.
