Litigation Finance
New York, NY
June 4, 2019

Description

Building on the success of the inaugural event this year, IMN is excited to announce the return of the ‘Financing, Structuring and Investing in Litigation Finance Conference’.  Once again, as the litigation and investor capital of the world, New York will play host to a select group of senior executives and thought leaders who are blazing trails for progress in the industry. 
 
The inaugural event in May 2018 hosted a delegation of over 200 people, representing litigation funds, law firms, corporate claimants, academia, brokerages and institutional investors.   
 
The event provided the perfect platform for legal professionals involved in commercial disputes to meet with investors specializing in the financing of litigation and arbitration cases.  Pioneers of this rapidly evolving industry discussed the opportunities available for investors and legal professionals, with some lively Q&A sessions making for an interactive experience.
 
The continued growth of the industry has caught the attention of investors from institutional investors, hedge funds, venture capital and private equity firms who recognize the untapped potential in the market.  More and more law firms and corporate counsels are making the most of opportunities in the space and are increasingly using litigation finance as a form of risk management and profit generation.
 
With new players entering the market all the time, the second edition of this one day summit will draw a diverse crowd of investors, litigation funders, brokers, corporate claimants, law firms and other entities in this exciting and developing market. IMN invites you to join us at the premier platform for relationship building, thought leadership and business development in the litigation funding space.
