Law firms and their clients are increasingly turning to litigation finance to fund commercial lawsuits. While the benefits of funding are evident, and the demand for funding is increasing, the industry remains unregulated and opaque. Perhaps because of this, many lawyers are hesitant about using third-party financing for their litigation matters.
Join us for this webinar in which a panel of leading industry experts, practitioners, and litigation funders will discuss recent ethical, legal, and business developments in the industry, including a discussion about the impact of the economic downturn, and how these developments can inform lawyers who are hesitant to engage with the industry.
- Learn about how attorney-client privilege, attorney work product, and disclosure concerns are understood and addressed in the litigation finance context
- Hear about a number of other concerns that lawyers voice about the industry, including maintaining control of litigation decisions and running afoul of fee-sharing rules
- Learn from our panel of experts how to confidently navigate the waters of litigation finance, and what the economic downturn means for the industry
