Litigation funding is becoming more common these days. Most legal consumers cannot afford the attorney's standard rate or the costs of preparing a lawsuit for trial. When a third party agrees to pay a client's legal fees or costs, tensions can arise between the lawyer's duty to the client and the third-party payer's expectations. Join this webinar to address some of the ethical questions that can arise in non-insurance, third-party payer situations. Provide practical guidance to the attorney confronted with such a situation and to suggest how the attorney can comply with his or her ethical responsibilities.  




  • Describe the history of litigation funding
  • Identify the rules of professional conduct that may be implicated including 1.8(f), 1.7, 5.4(c)
  • Determine the ethical concerns an attorney must evaluate when advising a client about a litigation funding transaction
