The New Dawn in Litigation Funding - Seminar11 Jun 2015
Litigation funding arrangements were first approved by the Royal Court in Jersey in 2011. Since then the market and legal thinking has developed and the options available have increased such that illiquidity, limited assets or simply a desire not to risk everything are no longer impediments to litigation.
This is a seminar directed at trustees, directors and insolvency practitioners. It will tell you what you cannot afford not to know about funding litigation and the alternatives if you are to discharge your duties properly.
We have put together a panel chaired by David Cadin, partner, Bedell Cristin, comprising:
• Lisa Springate, partner, Bedell Cristin
• Neil Purslow, co-founder, Therium
• Mark Goodwin, partner, DLA Piper
• Robert Gardner, partner, Bedell Cristin
Together they are going to share their good and bad experiences in either funding litigation or running funded litigation cases; they will look at some of those cases where funding has gone wrong and those cases where it has gone well; they are going to reflect on the impact of funding on the conduct of litigation; they will look at the type of funding now available along with the types of funder; and importantly, they will consider the alternatives to using a litigation funder.
