Litigation has a tendency to interfere with companies’ operational plans, often forcing parties to settle winnable cases so that they can put the litigation behind them and get on with business. Settlement on suboptimal terms may once have been the only option for lawyers and clients when they could not get a case dismissed or otherwise prevail within a reasonable time frame, but, now, insurance can provide a more effective way to neutralize these litigation-related risks.
The last year has seen a significant uptick in the fast-developing but still under-the-radar litigation risk insurance marketplace, driven by increasing use of litigation risk insurance by both litigators and in-house counsel.
Join us at 12pm ET / 9am PT on Thursday, March 23 for the next edition of our IHC Deep Dives Series, as Kevin Skrzysowski and Ross Weiner of Certum Group will take a deep dive into several innovative insurance solutions that provide coverage for plaintiffs and their counsel in the event the litigation they are pursuing is unsuccessful or if a judgment obtained at trial is threatened on appeal.
Kevin and Ross will also discuss:
- non-recourse litigation funding,
- the benefits of leveraging insurance before funding, and
- how capital protection wrappers can ensure that an entire group of cases will prevail making monetization or funding possible.
