Date Recorded: Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Time: 2:00 p.m. EST |11 a.m. PST

Cost: Complimentary

Sponsored by: 




According to research from the 2018 Litigation Finance Survey, 59% of in-house lawyers report that their companies have uncollected recoveries and unenforced judgments valued at $10 million or more—and an even higher percentage report abandoning meritorious claims for fear of adversely impacting their company’s bottom line.

Companies need not leave millions on the table—even as litigation budgets shrink. They can finance recoveries with legal finance, a tool designed to remove the risk and reduce the cost of pursuing meritorious litigation and realizing on the value of outstanding legal assets.

Learn the best practices in-house lawyers use to finance recoveries. Join Burford Capital’s Rufus Caine as he shares research and insights into how in-house legal departments leverage legal finance to recover funds, without adding cost and risk to the bottom line, thereby driving value for their companies.

Attend this webcast and you’ll learn:

  • How top companies are successfully instituting affirmative recovery programs
  • What research reveals about in-house use of legal finance
  • Why affirmative recoveries are increasingly becoming a competitive necessity
  • How legal finance can help companies drive value through their legal departments

Attendees will receive Burford’s 2018 Litigation Finance Survey white paper, which offers coverage and analysis of the latest trends in legal finance.
