Litigation funding, also called litigation finance, is a rapidly growing industry and involves a practice where a third-party funds some, or all, of a plaintiff’s legal expenses in exchange for a portion of the proceeds from litigation or arbitration. The first-ever detailed analysis of the U.S. commercial litigation funding industry was completed in 2019 using data collected directly from litigation funders. This analysis placed the size of the industry at $2.3 billion. In 2020, despite a global pandemic and disruption to the justice system, the commercial litigation funding industry grew by six percent, reaching $2.47 billion.
