Recently published ethics opinions and commentary have produced a growing body of advisory materials for attorneys working with litigation funders. 

Lawyers must approach transactions involving litigation funding mindful of several core professional obligations:  competence, the duty of loyalty to the client vis a vis the lawyer’s own financial interests, lawyer independence, and confidentiality of information. 

At the end of this presentation participants should be able to recognize and address the most significant ethical issues that arise from transactions involving litigation funding.
