With contributions from leading experts, drawn from legal practice, the judiciary and academia, and edited by one of the most accomplished litigation funders in the international market, it covers the issues raised by Burford v Muddy Waters . It looks at developing international norms in the law and practice of litigation funding, with a focus on the UK and the US, the two main centres for the international litigation funding industry.
It answers questions such as:
- How do litigation funders raise capital?
- What corporate and financial structures do they have?
- What returns do they make?
- How do they account for and report on their performance?
This will be invaluable to everyone with an interest in third party funding of high value litigation and arbitration.
