Building on the success of the inaugural event this year, IMN is excited to announce the return of the ‘Financing, Structuring and Investing in Litigation Finance Conference’. Once again, as the litigation and investor capital of the world, New York will play host to a select group of senior executives and thought leaders who are blazing trails for progress in the industry.

The inaugural event in May 2018 hosted a delegation of over 200 people, representing litigation funds, law firms, corporate claimants, academia, brokerages and institutional investors.

The event provided the perfect platform for legal professionals involved in commercial disputes to meet with investors specializing in the financing of litigation and arbitration cases. Pioneers of this rapidly evolving industry discussed the opportunities available for investors and legal professionals, with some lively Q&A sessions making for an interactive experience.
