Overview

Today’s in-house legal departments are facing growing litigation burdens from increased case volumes coupled with limited staffing and budget constraints. Yet, according to the 2022 In-House Litigation Risk Survey conducted by Risk Settlements in conjunction with In the House, only 5 percent of respondents say they have used litigation funding. Moreover, all too often, companies don’t realize that they can leverage their litigation portfolio like any other company asset and liquidate potential claims in exchange for cash, thereby creating an immediate boon to the company’s balance sheet.  Companies and their outside counsel now have an unprecedented opportunity to apply systematic financial innovation to the way they approach litigation.  By leveraging litigation funding and claim monetization, in-house legal departments can better manage litigation risks.

In this One-Hour Briefing you will learn how to:

  • Determine if there are efficiencies using litigation funding to carry the costs of the litigation (15 minutes)
  • Identify potential, latent litigation assets that could be monetized (15 minutes)
  • Convert an illiquid litigation claim into non-recourse capital without the risk of ongoing legal fees or expenses (15 minutes)
  • Manage disclosure requirements of working with a third-party funder (15 minutes)

 

Who Should Attend:  In-house counsel, litigators, litigation funders, finance and other allied professionals interested in better understanding litigation funding
