Boston University School of Law Working Paper No. 13-27 (June 21, 2013)

Abstract

: Because third-party funding and sales of legal rights are equivalent in terms of their economics, I examine arrangements in which third-party sales of legal rights are permitted today – waiver, subrogation, and settlement agreements.  The existing arrangements provide valuable lessons for the appropriate regulatory approach to third-party financing of litigation.
