A lead attorney in the NFL concussion settlement has been very critical of numerous third-party litigation funding companies that have loaned money to retired players involved in the class action, but it is his alleged failure to publicly disclose his history with another litigation funding company that has raised some eyebrows recently.

Seeger Weiss attorney Christopher Seeger is lead class counsel in the high-profile NFL concussion litigation, and until recently he was a director of Esquire Bank and its holding company, Esquire Financial Holdings. According to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Esquire Financial Holdings has provided consumer loans to claimants involved in mass tort and class action settlements, including the NFL concussion settlement.
