5 Factors to Consider
As litigation funding becomes mainstream, a new litigation funder seems to open nearly every week. Indeed, Google searches for “litigation funding” and “litigation finance” yield dozens of ads by various entities seeking to invest in litigation.
A business looking for funding may not know where to begin. To help, we have compiled a list of topics for businesses to consider as they evaluate their options.
Arbitration is an extremely popular mechanism for the resolution of commercial disputes. One of the main advertised benefits of arbitration is that it is more cost-effective than traditional litigation. While this is often true, it does not mean that arbitration is always cheap. Indeed, filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in major disputes can be substantial.
In addition, while arbitration costs are typically recoverable by the prevailing party, the risk of losing alone can deter parties from bringing an arbitration to enforce their rights.
