Litigation Funding – Is it Time to Legislate?

Currently prohibited in Ireland, litigation funding by professional funders is now mainstream in many common law jurisdictions, meaning that businesses can hedge litigation risk.  As Ireland seeks to position itself as a ‘go-to’ jurisdiction post-Brexit, could the rule against third party litigation funding impact Ireland’s attractiveness as a choice of forum?

In this podcast, Partners Catherine Derrig and Karyn Harty are joined by Robert Hanna, Gary Miller and David O’Farrell to discuss the legal position on litigation funding in Ireland, the UK and Australia.
