Litigation Finance


Parker Poe counsels funders, law firms, and companies on the evolving world of litigation finance, including helping clients obtain and structure litigation funding transactions for meritorious claims that may not be pursued otherwise because of litigation costs. Clients appreciate our team’s responsiveness, innovative fee structures, and ability to distill sophisticated transactions into user-friendly documents.

We have advised on transactions ranging from a few hundred thousand dollars to over $500 million. In representing litigation funding organizations, we counsel investors and fund managers on the structuring, documentation, issuance, and management of litigation finance funds, including providing counsel on regulatory compliance and best practices. Our perspective on best practices goes beyond the legal and ethics nuts and bolts to also include managing the economics of an investment team, aligning incentives with investors' interests, and navigating the latest trends in the investment funds arena. In addition, we counsel law firms and claimants seeking financing for litigation matters through documentation, compliance, performance of deal terms, and restructurings.

Having represented funders, law firms, and companies in litigation finance facilities, we understand the complexities of these arrangements and can guide clients through the compressed timelines and other industry specific deal terms.
