  • Upcoming Webinar! Claim Monetization: Reduce Costs and Accelerate Access to Capital

Aliant is pleased to present a one-hour live webinar on claim monetization. The webinar will take place on October 13 from 10-11 AM CEST. A replay of the webinar will be available after the scheduled live broadcast.

Claim monetization is an aspect of legal finance that many lawyers are unaware of. Most legal finance discussion focuses on its most common use, in which a third party pays lawyers’ fees and expenses so that claims may proceed. In-house lawyers who only see legal finance as a tool to pay their lawyers may mistakenly conclude that unless they can’t or don’t want to pay their lawyers out of pocket, legal finance isn’t for them. Legal finance enables companies to unlock the asset value of pending claims—including companies that can afford to and do pay their lawyers out of pocket. In doing so, monetization gives companies (and their firms) the ability to control the timing and certainty of cash flows back to the business by accelerating a portion of a pending claim.

Our speaker, Peter R. Griffin, is the founder and Director of Slaney Advisors—a leading sell-side consultancy that is on the cutting edge of finding solutions for clients who want to monetize their arbitration claims and awards. They have advised on some of the largest award monetization by face value and by purchase price consideration.

You will learn:

  • Why monetizing an arbitration claim can release much needed capital and reduce litigation costs for your clients.
  • How companies can reduce their exposure to the risk of loss, a reduction of damages or a reversal/set aside of a judgement.
  • The benefit of controlling timing by gaining access to capital based on their preferred timeline—cash they can then invest in the business without delay.
  • There are very few law firms that have developed expertise in this area, and demand for these legal services outstrips supply. This is an opportunity to become a leader in this emerging practice area, which combines aspects of M&A, corporate finance, litigation and arbitration. The market for these transactions, and thus these legal services, is truly global.
