Litigation finance enables plaintiffs and law firms to use the “value” of causes of action in affirmative litigation or arbitration proceedings to secure funding from third party “litigation funders” by monetizing potential recoveries from litigation.

The litigation finance industry is relatively new to the United States, and it is growing rapidly. Litigation funders are expanding in size and growing in number. In the last several years, many of the industry’s early entrants have expanded their footprint and attracted additional capital while new litigation funders have entered the U.S. market. At the same time, law firms and litigants are becoming more familiar with litigation finance and more comfortable using it.

With attorneys who have worked as a director at a litigation funder, represented litigation funders, and obtained litigation finance for clients, McDonald Hopkins is uniquely qualified to advise clients on all aspects of litigation finance.

We represent:

McDonald Hopkins’ Litigation Finance Group includes members from the firm’s Litigation Department, Intellectual Property Department, and Strategic Advisory and Restructuring Department.
