How do litigation funders raise capital and how do they spend it? What are their corporate and financial structures? What types of cases do they invest in and what are their returns? What contractual structures do they use? What are the key legal issues relating to litigation funding?

The Law and Business of Litigation Finance answers these questions and is an essential guide for those who seek to provide litigation funding, as well as for anyone who wishes to understand the litigation funding process.

The Second Edition includes:

- New content covering the commercial and finance aspects of litigation finance, examining the different stakeholders, what they seek to achieve, and the risks and rewards that attract them
- Increased coverage of the position in Australia, continental Europe and jurisdictions such as Singapore and Hong Kong
- Updated case law including recent high profile cases in the UK, USA and Australia, and a comprehensive record of relevant legislation and regulations in those jurisdictions

Edited by one of the most accomplished litigation innovators in the international market with contributions from leading experts, this is a must-have guide for all lawyers, commercial court judges, legal policy makers, regulators, investors, and academics in these jurisdictions.

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Practice and Procedure online service.
