The growth of the litigation finance industry

Tracking the explosive growth of litigation funding

Litigation finance as an industry has experienced incredible growth in the last few years in the U.S. The practice of financing lawsuits has been well established for decades in the Australian and UK markets, but only recently has it become widespread in the United States. Much of that growth has been fueled by British and Australian companies expanding globally, but national companies like Legalist have also contributed to the maturity of the litigation finance industry.

That said, the industry still has a lot of untapped potential, and for savvy investors there are a number of opportunities to expand the offerings to many more people.
