Commercial Third-Party Litigation Funding:
An innovative tool enhancing access to justice and
enabling counsel to make meritorious cases to court

Civil litigation | 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Find out how you can help your clients pursue complex litigation, manage the risk and cost of litigation, and level the playing field against a well-funded defendant. Recently, Canada opened the door for litigants to seek third party financing in commercial litigation cases through its recent decision in Schenk v. Valeant Pharmaceuticals. Clients and their counsel in the U.S., U.K. and Australia frequently use commercial funding to pursue litigation, and its role is growing in Canada. 

Join us for an insightful discussion to gain a better understanding of what commercial funding is, how it might be helpful to your clients and implications for defending funded cases.
