Rimon’s Partner John Hanley will speak during the discussion of, “Litigation Finance on the Rise: Demystifying Trends, Opportunities, and Best Practices”.


Litigation finance continues to rise and become a substantial financing tool for everyone today. Because law firms and corporate clients greatly suffered from liquidity constraints and unstable balance sheets brought by the pandemic, they have begun looking for alternative ways to finance legal disputes by engaging with litigation funders. Notably, the increased access to litigation finance has offered considerable advantages and has been widely recognized by bar associations and courts.

As the litigation finance industry remains active yet uncertain, companies must still keep themselves wary of red flags. They must keep themselves in the loop of any emerging development in this field to better maximize the benefits of third-party funding.

In this LIVE Webcast, litigation finance professionals Eli Schulman (Validity Finance, LLC) and John J. Hanley (Rimon, P.C.) will provide an in-depth discussion of the current and emerging trends and developments in litigation finance. Speakers will also discuss common pitfalls and offer best practices in leveraging third-party funding.

Key topics include:

  • How to present your case to a funder
  • Funding structures: beyond single-case funding
  • Funding and Covid-19: the flood after the plague?
  • True sales in litigation funding
  • Privilege doctrines in litigation funding
  • Disclosure requirements in litigation funding
  • Litigation funding waterfalls
