Everything you wanted to know about third-party funding in the US (but were afraid to ask)


Third-party funding is not a new concept but has become increasingly popular in recent times as clients look at ways of pursuing litigation while, at the same time, reducing financial exposure and risk. In this session, expert speakers from Omni Bridgeway join The Legal 500 to discuss the concept of third-party funding, how it can benefit clients, the funding process, and the key terms of funding.
