Litigation finance can be used in both commercial and consumer cases. Is it the right option for your cases? This panel will explain the nuts and bolts of litigation finance. Panelists will discuss the issues to consider when evaluating a case, including the need for due diligence before signing a contract and the red flags that should cause concern. They will also address some of the ethical issues involved, such as fee-splitting rules and the impact of financing on the attorney-client relationship.
