In May, Legalist was featured in an article in Law Practice Today discussing the latest global trends in the litigation finance industry. Alongside global experts who emphasized the growth of the market for legal finance, the increasing comfort of lawyers with the emergence of sophisticated finance partners, and the growing popularity of financing, Legalist co-founder Eva Shang emphasized the ability of technology to make financing increasingly available for smaller cases:
"At its root, litigation finance creates access to justice. Especially focusing on small business disputes, we see our mission at Legalist as directly helping the little guy get access to the court system. Whether you're a local ice cream manufacturer in Massachusetts or an antique shop in Santa Barbara, access to justice should not be constrained by capital. The growth of litigation finance delivers that."
