The panel will discuss cutting edge issues concerning litigation funding in bankruptcy cases. Litigation funding presents a new frontier of liquidity and leverage for professionals representing debtors and committees, and concerns for those representing secured creditors and litigation targets. Our panel will cover the nuts and bolts of litigation funding and unique issues bankruptcy cases present on privilege, settlement authority, and the court approval process. The panel will focus on how litigation funding has worked for post-confirmation litigation trusts and how it can change the playing field in cash collateral/DIP financing/plan exclusivity/derivative standing disputes.
