2018 Event

On September 17-18, 2018, Dealmakers Forums hosted the Inaugural LF Dealmakers Forum focused on litigation finance and legal finance. The invitation-only event was attended by a sold-out crowd of approximately 200 thought leaders in litigation finance, as well as in-house and outside counsel, and other key decision-makers in the industry. Over the course of the one-and-a-half day event, participants took part in interactive panel discussions, productive networking events, and 1-to-1 business meetings.

The event kicked off Monday morning with a keynote speech by Ashby Jones, Chief of the Law Bureau for the Wall Street Journal, who spoke about the state and future of litigation finance in the context of its short history (less than 10 years old) and rapid emergence in terms of the amount of capital raised. Ashby was just one of the many notable names and A-list speakers addressing the industry’s most pressing issues.
