Litigation Finance for Parties and Law Firms with Jason Levine
Large-scale disputes often require large-scale investment. Finance for commercial litigation allows law firms to unlock the value of their lawsuits, and makes it possible for firms, companies and businesspeople to commit the resources needed without the risk of repayment if the case is lost – continuing to engage in business as usual.
In this special episode of the ABA: Litigation Section, guest Jason Levine discusses how law firms and their clients can obtain litigation financing for commercial litigation cases, and the value of this increasingly mainstream funding solution.
As an Investment Manager and Legal Counsel for Omni Bridgeway, a publicly-traded litigation finance company, Jason Levine helps corporations and law firms obtain non-recourse financing for commercial litigation, mitigate risk, and achieve their growth strategies with financing solutions. These include using litigation portfolios as collateral for off-balance sheet operating capital financing and monetizing claims and judgments.

In this episode, special guests, Sharla Frost and Angela Steffen Meyer, provide litigators with a practical guide to getting more clients and advancing their legal careers through simple and effective business development strategies.
