Infocast's Commercial Litigation Funding & Investment 2012

Leading Litigation Investment Managers and Major Law Firms Gather to Discuss the Potential Risks and Rewards for the Industry

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2012) - Infocast will hold its Commercial Litigation Funding & Investment 2012 in New York, NY March 14 - 16, 2012. Third party commercial litigation funding is emerging as a multi-billion dollar investment market for hedge funds, institutional and other investors. It is yielding highly attractive returns for pioneering investors, but the demand for capital by litigators, SMEs and corporations involved in lawsuits outstrips the level of current investment. This summit will provide the opportunity to gain an invaluable introduction to this emerging asset class and meet the most experienced commercial litigation fund managers, investors and litigators.

The event will be held at the most opportune time as third party litigation finance catches on in the U.S. Recently, Juridica Capital Management chairman and CEO, Richard Fields, stated that the U.S. Litigation market is thriving so much that Juridica could easily be financing $150 million per year. Fields, in addition to other financial managers, hedge funds, private equity, litigators and general counsels who are building a new legal finance community, will be speaking at the upcoming Commercial Litigation Funding & Investment Summit.

The event will also boast an impressive roster of over 40 speakers from companies including Bentham Capital LLC, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, Thomson Reuters, BlackRobe Capital Partners LLC, Kaye Scholer LLP, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Stone Capital Assets, Manning Street Capital Management, Fulbrook Management LLC and Locke Lord LLP among many others. "Only those investors and lawyers who fully understand commercial litigation finance can successfully navigate through the legal and financial complexities to profit," said Event Producer Erin Dolleris.
