Event Synopsis:
In recent years, litigation financing has helped companies of all sizes in dealing with commercial disputes through litigation or arbitration. Litigation financing or third-party litigation funding is a financial solution used by legal firms and corporate counsel as a form of risk management. Litigation funders provide capital to otherwise impecunious or risk averse plaintiffs with the financial means to pursue meritorious claims in return for an agreed upon sum of a plaintiff’s recovery.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by the Knowledge Group will discuss in depth the fundamental framework of litigation financing and help the audience understand the important issues and trends surrounding this significant topic. They will also present best practices and practical tips to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.

Key topics include:
• Fundamentals of Litigation Financing
• The Litigation Funding Transparency Act of 2018
• Opportunities and Legal Pitfalls
• Common Risks and Challenges
• Legal and Ethical Considerations
• What Lies Ahead in 2019
