Once a fledgling industry predominantly used in the Commonwealth nations, litigation funding has over the past ten years becomes a well-accepted and prevalent practice in the United States. As the industry has evolved, so too have the menu of available products, strategic decisions made by funders and practitioners, and types of investors.

Panelists include preeminent experts in the field of litigation funding, including academics who have written on the topic, investment managers at preeminent litigation funders, litigators who have used funding products, and independent litigation funding advisors.

The first episode of the series is A Menu of Products for Investors and Lawyers
and airs on May 8th at 1:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Evan Fried of Greybridge Capital LLC. He is joined by Charles Agee of Westfleet Advisors, Ernest Getto of Burford Capital, Stephen McMullin of Brickell Key Asset Management, and David Spiegel of GLS Capital LLC, to educate attorneys and clients considering litigation funding, as well as investors seeking to learn about an increasingly mainstream asset class.

Litigation funding is an increasingly-popular tool for attorneys and clients to share the risk and reward of litigation with third-party investors, and for investors to capitalize on the uncorrelated returns generated by legal-driven revenue. However, the term "litigation-" or "legal-" funding actually encompasses a handful of products, which vary based on borrower profile, stage and sector of litigation, use of proceeds, and ultimately, cost of capital and risk-reward profile. This webinar examines three funding products -- case fundings, law firm loans, and portfolio fundings -- and aims to inform attorneys on best solutions for their firms and clients, and provide an overview for institutional investors looking to allocate capital to litigations.

The COMMERCIAL LITIGATION FUNDING 101 - 2018 Series is produced by Financial Poise™. The second and final episode in the series is "Three Case Studies, " airing on June 12th at 1:00 PM CST. Both episodes will be available live through West LegalEdCenter and then on-demand following the live premiere.
