    1 PM EST

    At its most basic, litigation finance allows a third party to pay for costs associated with litigation or arbitration in exchange for a portion of the ultimate award or settlement. The commercial litigation finance market is booming, and established and new funders are increasingly funding the costs of claimants and their lawyers for all sorts of commercial claims. Learn from our expert panel as they discuss the basics of common transactions, the reach and scope of the market today, and how to evaluate the legal and legal ethics issues involved.
