Litigation funding: will your case be funded?
Over the past decade litigation funding radically changed the dynamic by providing lawyers and their clients with opportunities to monetise good claims through litigation. Today the catastrophic impact of Covid-19 on the global economy creates a liquidity problem for a huge number of businesses. The demand for litigation funding will increase dramatically in the medium term. Funders are already inundated with applications. In this context what are the chances to get your case accepted and funded?
In this webinar, Simon Davenport QC (3 Hare Court) will discuss the current state of litigation funding and address the key strategies involved in getting cases successfully funded. He will also be joined by Sergey Litovchenko (Bivonas) to discuss claims from Russia & CIS and the challenges they face when searching for funding.
This webinar will focus on:
· The post-Covid litigation surge;
· Funding stories: the good, the bad, the ugly;
· The keys to obtaining funding;
· The challenges raised by cases from Russia-CIS;
· How to structure a case to get it funded?
