  • Why Mandatory Disclosure of Third-Party Litigation Funding Is a Bad Idea

    One widespread response to the rise of litigation funding is a call for the mandatory disclosure of any litigation funding arrangements. Advocates of mandatory disclosure contend that it is necessary to bring litigation funding “out of the shadows” and to prevent any potential conflicts of interest.

  • Does Third-Party Funding Really Lead to More Frivolous Litigation?

    One of the most prevalent arguments against third-party legal financing is that the number of frivolous lawsuits will increase when plaintiffs have access to financial resources that will cover litigation costs. Evidence from the Netherlands suggests that this is not the case and that this argument against third-party litigation funding will not increase the number of frivolous lawsuits.

    Too often, third-party litigation funding is described as an entirely new development that departs from established legal traditions. Indeed, it seems as though the opposition to third-party funding for plaintiffs is not the product of a principled devotion to legal tradition. Instead, it seems more like an attempt to preserve the status quo that favors defendants. This presentation contains images that were used under a Creative Commons License.

    For many critics, such a high rate of return is seen as proof that there is something unseemly – maybe even usurious – about third-party litigation funding. But the high rates of return for third-party investment may not mean that such investment is a problem. To the contrary, it may mean that there should be more of it.

BOOK REVIEW THIRD PARTY LITIGATION FUNDING By Nick Rowles-Davies Oxford University Press ISBN: 978 0 19871 592 4 www.oup.com IDEAL FOR COMMERCIAL PRACTITIONERS: A READABLE AND TIMELY EXAMINATION OF LITGATION FUNDING An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers With cutbacks in legal aid, access to justice has become all too limited for those of limited means -- which is why the recent publication of this new title from Oxford University Press is therefore all too timely. As Sir Rupert Jackson explains in the foreword, ‘this book deals with one important aspect of the 2013 civil justice reforms, namely means of funding civil litigation.’ The book concentrates on the commercial world, focusing mainly on the funding of single litigation matters in the courts of England and Wales by professional litigation funders of which the author, Nick Rowles-Davies, is one. After writing this book, but prior to its publication, Rowles-Davies became managing director of the world’s largest litigation finance firm and is well able to explain the complexities of the emerging litigation funding landscape which, for a number of reasons can only become larger and more significant. Commercial lawyers -- in particular those with larger corporate clients -- will need to acquire an in-depth understanding of the processes, procedures and guidelines involved in litigation funding which this book amply provides with insight and clarity. But note that although this burgeoning industry offers a wide range of financial products, the principal focus of this book –as the author points out-- is single-case funding, although other funding options are also explored. ‘Simply put,’ says Rowles-Davies, ‘litigation funding, or third party funding is the process whereby… a ‘funder’ that has no direct interest in a piece of litigation, pays the legal fees of one of the parties.’ The most common model in this area of high financial risk (but by no means the only model) is that the funder receives a return on this form of investment based on the proceeds resulting from the successful outcome of the case. The book certainly provides practitioners with valuable guidance on, we would assume, every pertinent aspect of third party litigation funding, including how it works, its history and development… and why, when and when not to implement it. Other crucial issues including costs and insurance, professional obligations and regulatory issues are also well examined for the practitioner. Particularly useful are the chapters on Jackson and DBAs (Damages Based Agreements) and “Funding and the Future”. Interesting and illustrative case studies abound and the position of litigation funding in over a dozen overseas jurisdictions is also examined. In the five appendices, you’ll find, for example, the Litigation Funding Agreement and the Code of Conduct for Litigation Funders. These resources, plus the tables of cases and of legislation make this well written and accessible volume indispensable for all commercial practitioners and indeed anyone pondering the pros and cons of litigation.
