The Basics of Litigation Financing

Recorded: Wednesday, August 7, 2013

 

As corporate boards continue to pressure legal departments to cut expenses, more and more companies seek outside financing for their legal claims.  As law firms look to thrive in a revenue-pressed environment, risk-sharing with clients, facilitated by external financing, is an increasingly important tool for achieving premium billing.  It has thus become imperative for businesses and their counsel to effectively appraise whether litigation financing could be beneficial to a company’s claims management and bottom line.
