The commercial legal finance industry has evolved in the last decade and is now widely used by leading law firms and Fortune 500 companies. As one GC of a multinational logistics company explained in a recent study: “Fifteen years ago, if someone asked about funding litigation it sounded radical, but now it is mainstream.”

It is imperative for businesses and law firms to be well-versed in the availability and potential uses of legal finance: Far from beginning a novel or niche tool, legal finance is now an essential consideration as they look at their portfolios of disputes.

In addition to providing the comprehensive guide to commercial legal finance, Burford will host a series of webcasts addressing specific chapter content.
