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.

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 fund...

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.

Seyfarth Synopsis: American and international courts have been debating the tentative legality of disclosing third-party litigation funding. In this vlog video, Seyfarth Shaw Associate Alex Karasik sits down with class action litigator Jerry Maatman to discuss what third-party litigation is, what it means for businesses, and the tactics that businesses can use to get in front of this obstacle.
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.

Third-party litigation funding, or litigation financing, was virtually unheard of in the United States not long ago, but is now among the fastest-growing areas of the financial industry. Third-party litigation funding takes many forms, including advances to individual plaintiffs, usually in personal injury lawsuits (“consumer litigation financing”), advances to businesses who are plaintiffs or defendants in commercial lawsuits such as patent infringement lawsuits (“commercial litigation funding”), and financing to law firms or individual attorneys for a variety of reasons (“attorney litigation funding”). Litigation funding of law firms or individual attorneys is sometimes a form of commercial litigation funding depending on the use of the funds. Commercial litigation funding originally be...
How Litigation Funding Is Shaking Up The Legal Industry: Law firms are out of ideas on how to boost profits, other than rate hikes. Corporate clients are frequently unimaginative and reluctant to experiment with anything other than rate discounts. The Bench is conservative and concerned about control over cases, rather than promoting responsible access to the legal system. This session will explore the notion that all of these issues are fully addressed by responsible risk sharing and that, arguably, funding is the only historically transformative and disruptive innovation since contingencies (1700s) and insurance (1800s).

John Beisner, a partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, discusses the paper "Selling Lawsuits, Buying Trouble: The Emerging World of Third-Party Litigation Financing in the United States," which was released at the 10th Annual Legal Reform Summit on October 28, 2009. This paper begins with an overview of third-party litigation financing. It next examines current third-party financing practices in the United States. It then sets forth a critique of the practice, particularly the incentives it creates to engage in frivolous and abusive litigation. In this section, the paper also presents a case study on the Commonwealth of Australia, the first jurisdiction to permit third-party litigation funding, where such funding has dramatically increased litigation and given investors pe...
