Litigation finance is where a nonparty funds a plaintiffs lawsuit in exchange for an interest in the recovery. Some recent estimates place the size of the litigation finance market at over $100 billion. This burgeoning industry has allowed for greater flexibility in how individuals, businesses and law firms approach litigation. Litigation funding opens up opportunities for litigants which would otherwise not exist due to the risk, complexity and expense associated with litigation. In this program, Andrew Goldenberg of Goldenberg Law, LLC (www.glawnyc.com ), will address the basics of litigation finance and how the increased use of litigation funding has resulted in more demand for disclosure of documents and communications concerning litigation funding arrangements, as well as recent court decisions that have impacted litigation finance discovery.
