Litigation Finance

Litigation finance refers to the process and system by which law firms and their plaintiffs can finance their litigation costs through a third party finance company.  

Law Firm Financing

Litigation funding offers a way to access the capital law firms need without the restrictions of conventional financing options.  Law firm financing involves leveraging a contingency fee portfolio for operational, marketing, and case expenses.

There are five different stages that a litigation funder can get involved in a commercial case.
Litigation investments offer a risk-reward scenario: the risk rewards are the highest early in the legal process
when the case is in discovery. During the early stage of a case, the case has been defined and the parameters of the
case are in the process of being built.

Once a case in in litigation, the case is more developed and if it is dragging on, a plaintiff or law firm
may seek to monetize a portion of the potential case proceeds to pay for other expenses.

Once there is a Verdict and a potential appeal, the case risk is lowered the general risk-reward realtionship
of investing in the case shifts in favor of the investor. However, the risk is still binary. If the plaintiff loses,
investors lose too. These are non-recourse investments. If the plaintiff wins, it’s a matter of how much and
how long it will take for the funds to arrive. Once the settlment is final and the plaintiff prevails in appeal,
the risk shifts dramatically lower but there is still an active collection process that must be completed. Appeals
touch off another round of potential risks and investment. Once a settlement arrives, that is great news for the
plaintiff because it means investors are guaranteed a payout.
