Litigation Funding Investment Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers:

  • Favorable Legal Environment - The legal framework for litigation financing has become more favorable in several jurisdictions. Legislation or regulatory frameworks providing a clear and supportive framework for the use of litigation funding have been adopted in some jurisdictions. Legal aid has made it possible for the litigation funding market to grow by creating an equitable and predictable environment for investors and complainants.
  • Potential for High Returns - When funded cases have been successful, litigation funding may deliver substantial returns to investors. In general, litigation funders receive a proportion of the financial settlement or judgment as their return on investment. The success of cases can lead to a significant return, often superior to traditional investment options.
  • Institutional Investment - The arrival of Blockchain Technology and investment funds, including hedge funds and private equity firms, has significantly boosted the litigation funding investment market. As per reports, Blockchain is already used by about 3% of the world's population. These institutional investors bring significant capital and technical expertise to the sector, which will help it mature and professionalize.


  • Lack of Standardization: In terms of funding conditions, fee structures, and reporting practices there is a lack of standardization in the litigation funding investment market. Investors seeking clarity and comparability across various financing opportunities may find this lack of standardization to be a challenge.
  • Litigation funding is inherently risky, as funders may not recover their investment if the case is unsuccessful.
  • Court decisions regarding litigation funding can impact the industry’s growth and stability.
