Commercial Litigation Funding - Menu of Products

A Menu of Products for Investors and Lawyers 2020

Litigation funding is an increasingly-popular tool for attorneys and clients to share the risk and reward of litigation with third-party investors, and for investors to capitalize on the uncorrelated returns generated by legal-driven revenue. However, the term “litigation-” or “legal-” funding actually encompasses a handful of products, which vary based on borrower profile, stage and sector of litigation, use of proceeds, and ultimately, cost of capital and risk-reward profile. This webinar examines three funding products — case fundings, law firm loans, and portfolio fundings — and aims to inform attorneys on best solutions for their firms and clients, and provide an overview for institutional investors looking to allocate capital to litigations.
