Reasons plaintiffs consider using litigation finance

Litigation finance allows entities to pursue valuable litigation without having to pay some or all of the litigation costs. Instead, litigation funders extend financing to plaintiffs to pay for the litigation costs. Money from litigation finance also may be used by the plaintiff for other corporate purposes. In fact, a litigation finance arrangement could allow a plaintiff to receive some money upfront to de-risk its situation and to pay all litigation costs, with the plaintiff maintaining an interest in the litigation that could result in a substantial recovery upon a later settlement or judgment.

Typically, litigation funding is extended to plaintiffs on a non-recourse basis with litigation funders receiving a portion of proceeds from successful judgments or settlements. If the plaintiff is not successful in the litigation or arbitration, the litigation funder does not receive any recovery.
