Litigation Finance 101: How Funding Can Help Clients and Lawyers

Recorded On 05/26/2021


Litigation finance lets third-party funders help lawyers and their clients meet the mounting costs of litigation. Its use is rapidly expanding in the United States, with funders investing in claims on both a single-case and portfolio basis.

Our presenters—a litigation funder, and an advisor to clients who use funding—will explain the various ways funders invest in litigation, describe what funding transactions look like, and discuss the legal and ethical rules relevant to funding.
