Lipman Karas has been at the forefront of cases involving litigation funding for the last 20 years.
Implementing appropriate financing arrangements for a litigation project is a key consideration for clients. Subject to legal and regulatory requirements in particular jurisdictions, there is now a wide range of third party financing alternatives for litigants.
LK lawyers have been at the forefront of the effective use and development of third party funding of litigation, since the early 1990s in Australia. Whilst a newer phenomenon in some countries, LK’s expertise in this area over more than two decades is unparalleled globally.
That expertise benefits clients through a deep knowledge of the litigation funding market and available funding sources and mechanisms globally. Like other disciplines, there is no one size fits all approach to litigation finance.
Matching the most suitable funder with the particular litigation project and client is both an art and science, achievable only through years of experience of conducting externally funded litigation with a wide variety of market participants.
LK’s expertise in this area is widely recognised with LK lawyers frequently asked to present at international conferences and participate in regulatory and law reform initiatives, most recently on the Hong Kong Law Reform Commission Sub-Committee on Third Party Funding of Arbitration in Hong Kong.
