About the Program

Litigation finance is finance provided by an external investor to fund some or all of the legal costs of a matter, in return for a success fee if the matter is successful. Litigation finance normally provides a cash contribution to attorneys while they are working on a partial or full contingency basis. It also provides equality of arms to the funded party, offering a tactical benefit for claimants against well-resourced defendants.

Increasingly law firms are turning to litigation finance to provide a cash injection from existing cases run on a contingency basis and also to finance future matters which can then be offered to clients on commercially attractive terms.


The panel will explore how litigation finance can:

  • Fund single cases
  • Fund portfolios of cases
  • Help establish realistic values for cases
  • Provide finance to allow law firms to offer competitive fees
