Litigation Essentials for In-House Counsel
How to Leverage Risk Transfer Solutions to Create Certainty and Reduce Risk in Litigation

Event Description

As In-House Counsel are well aware, litigation can be expensive and risky, especially Class Action litigation. But what if it didn’t have to be? Recent innovations in insurance and funding solutions now allow companies to shift the defense and plaintiff outcome risk of litigation to third parties.

 

These solutions include:

– Class Action Settlement Insurance, which helps companies mitigate, cap, and transfer the financial risk of class action settlements;

– Litigation Buyout Insurance, which helps companies ring-fence litigation exposure and transfer the full financial risk of known, threatened or existing class action, antitrust and non-class litigation liabilities;

– Judgment Preservation Insurance, which provides a backstop to any judgment which may be subject to appeal, locking in a particular judgment amount, regardless as to what the court ultimately decides;

– Adverse Judgment Insurance, which provides coverage for costs and expenses in the event of an adverse judgment; and

– Claim Monetization, which provides non-recourse funding for affirmative claims.

 

Join us at 12pm ET on Thursday, June 9 for the next edition of our IHC Essentials Series, as Kevin Skrzysowski and Ross Weiner of Risk Settlements, will explore how litigation risk transfer solutions help companies achieve their business and financial objectives.  Kevin will take a deep dive into several specific case studies to show their practical applications and benefits, including:

 

– The Mechanics – How do These Insurance and Funding Solutions Work?

– How Much do These Cost?

– What are the Key Benefits and Caveats? And

– Real-world case studies involving Litigation Buyout Insurance, Judgment Preservation Insurance, Class Action Settlement Insurance, and Affirmative Claim Monetization

 

Attendees will come away from the program with a strong understanding of litigation risk transfer solutions and their potential impact on litigation matters.
