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.

What is LITIGATION FUNDING? What does LITIGATION FUNDING mean? LITIGATION FINDING meaning - LITIGATION FUNDING definition - LITIGATION FUNDING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Litigation funding, also known as legal financing and third-party funding, enables a party to litigate or arbitrate without having to pay for it, whether because they are unable to pay for it or because they do not want to. A third party professional funder can pay some or all of the costs/expenses associated with a dispute in return for a share of the proceeds of the dispute if it is successful. If the litigation is not successful, the funder bears the costs it has agreed to fund. Whilst it is primarily large cases that receive funding, there is no official minimum requirement for funding as this is decided on merit by each individual funder on a case by case basis. Various new websites are also promoting the use of litigation crowdfunding, in which case hundreds or tens of thousands of individuals can help to pay for a legal dispute, either investing in a case in return for part of a contingent fee, or offering donations to support a legal right that they believe in. Two litigation crowdfunding platforms, Trialfunder and LexShares, have recently emerged in the U.S. Litigation funding can be broadly split into 4 different forms in the UK, Conditional fee agreements, Damages Based Agreements, Fixed Fees and Third Party Funding. Litigation funding is not a new concept. It has been permitted in England and Wales since 1967, but until relatively recently it was limited to insolvency situations. Litigation funding's journey from its prohibition in Ancient Greece to its present-day status as ‘the life-blood of the justice system’ were all covered in Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury's lecture at Harbour's inaugural keynote address, ‘From Barretry, Maintenance & Champerty to Litigation Funding’ at Gray’s Inn, London, on 8 May 2013.Lord Neuberger is President of the UK Supreme Court. Selected key judgments relating to Litigation Funding, handed down by the Courts of England & Wales, are summarised below as well as key policy and regulatory developments.
