On 10 January 2017, the Singapore Parliament passed the Civil Law (Amendment Act) 2017 (“Amendment Act”), which came into force on 1 March 2017. The Amendment Act introduced changes to both the Civil Law Act and the Legal Profession Act, permitting qualifying organisations to provide third-party funding for international arbitrations that are seated in Singapore.
