Litigation funding money

The growth of litigation finance is as interesting a story as the legal profession has witnessed in recent years. I’ve previously commented in these pages on the stubborn efforts by business interests to destroy this industry or at least regulate it half to death. Despite these efforts, some litigation funders like Burford Capital and Bentham IMF have become very big, while new players continue to enter the fray, undeterred.

At the same time, these newcomers are taking their entrepreneurial ventures in new directions—beyond litigation funding, in fact, to include capital funding for overall law firm growth. It is, after all, a natural development. If firm and funder are discussing millions of dollars to underwrite a lawsuit, such a conversation might well evolve to include capitalizing the law firm itself for partner and practice acquisition and to build a scalable financial infrastructure to drive growth.
