Governance & Litigation Finance: What Board Members Should Know

Governance & Litigation Finance:  What Board Members Should Know

September 15, 2020

Board members are increasingly concerned with the oversight of litigation by the company, since even a worthwhile cause of action can involve substantial expenses and risks for the company. Litigation finance is a potentially valuable tool for companies to help reduce the costs and risks of litigation, and board directors should be aware of its usefulness and how it works. Our program will educate attorneys who advise boards of directors about using litigation finance as a source of non-dilutive capital, and its potential appeal due to its nonrecourse funding agreement.  We will also discuss some case examples illustrating its usefulness, and how courts have dealt with issues of privilege and confidentiality.
