Litigation is expensive. Every lawyer knows of meritorious cases that languish because the person wronged cannot afford to access justice. Of course, a number of tools have been developed to meet the challenge of affordability including class actions, contingency fees, pro bono work, and others. One means of financing the cost of litigation is through funding by companies that fund litigation in exchange for an interest in the litigation proceeds.
Such arrangements have historically seen significant roadblocks in common law jurisdictions. However, in recent years there have been changes statutorily, in case law, and in court rules that have begun to clear the way for such arrangements. Australia and other international examples have shown that it can be done.
Consider cutting-edge research on the viability of third-party litigation funding and examine the challenges associated with it.
