Litigation is something most companies want to avoid; unfortunately, it is a reality that we all have to be prepared for; therefore, understanding some of the things that can propel you to the winning side of a trial is beneficial to corporations and law firms.

In addition, we will consider pending regulations and ethical considerations of using TPLF and what financing companies need to do to ensure client satisfaction. You will leave understanding new litigation best practices, ideas as to how and why your litigation financing strategy matters, and also how to take advantage of emerging technologies in order to make the best and most profitable decisions possible.
