ESKARIAM, in collaboration with Thomson Reuters, is organising a round table on litigation funding in the class action market in Spain and Europe.
Moderated by David Fernández, CEO of ESKARIAM, and featuring Lianne Craig (Managing Partner of Hausfeld in London), Mick Smith (Head of Burford Capital in Europe) and Chris Garvey (Founder of Sachenga&Co.), this one-hour online legal training analyses the key issues surrounding the financing of collective claims, and what factors are relevant for all parties involved: investment funds and law firms.
Over the past few years, the legal sector has undergone a profound transformation. New financing techniques have emerged, facilitating the handling of large cases that would be impossible to handle financially over the years if it were not for the participation of litigation investment funds.
This online roundtable will discuss the different litigation funding formulas and the direct influence they have on class actions, a booming market in Spain. In Europe, many of the large law firms have already opened the door to funds to be able to access certain cases, covering the costs of the same and facilitating the promotion of these actions in defence of those affected by different infringements and/or unlawful behaviour. The seminar will be attended by key figures in the European legal sector, all of whom have extensive experience in class actions and their financing:
During the talk held by these four professionals, the following issues of great interest to law firms interested in this field, which is expected to have such a great impact in Spain in the coming years, are discussed:
Access to the full seminar is free of charge via the Thomson Reuters platform.
ESKARIAM, aware of the importance of litigation funding in the class action market, would like this seminar to be a point of debate for the Spanish legal sector. Conversations like this will help to understand the fundamental role of investment funds in large litigation and the need to collaborate in order to access a part of the market that would otherwise be impossible to make financially sustainable.
