Third-party litigation finance continues to gain popularity in the fields of law and finance. Nearly unheard of decade ago, litigation finance is now a multi-billion-dollar industry. Litigation finance allows claimholders who otherwise cannot afford the mounting costs of litigation to access the courts with top-choice counsel. It helps law firms expand their contingency fee practice, and it allows claimholders to mitigate the risks of litigation and monetize their legal assets.
With litigation finance continuously evolving and growing, it is becoming more imperative for practitioners to keep themselves abreast of the recent trends and developments in this field. They must not only be able to help their firms and clients navigate the different funding options, but also to understand how to navigate the ethical and regulatory issues relevant to the world of litigation finance.
In this LIVE Webcast, legal counsel Grant Schrader (Law Finance Group) and investment manager William C. Marra (Validity Finance, LLC) will discuss the significant and latest issues with respect to litigation finance. Speakers will provide a comprehensive guide on how practitioners can better maximize the opportunities presented by this rising trend whilst mitigating potential risks.
Key topics include:
• Litigation Finance – What Is It and How Does It Work?
• Common Litigation Finance Products
• Why Use Litigation Finance?
• Best Practices to Get Your Case Funded
