Legal Cost & Contingent Fee Insurance

Legis is a leader in designing risk mitigation strategies to allow firms to hedge risk in commercial claim investments. Insurance protects firms from the downside risks when taking advantage of the opportunities for achieving increased contingent fee revenue. Legis has partnered with leaders in the insurance market to develop unique insurance solutions that can be used on their own or in combination with funding . . .

Alternative Litigation Finance

Our experience in claim investing is unparalleled. In fact we created the term “ALF”, which is now adopted by The American Bar Association and leading global academics. We also developed the original underwriting standards and systems for the Alternative Litigation Finance markets. Today we are widely acknowledged as leading innovators in this field and can help you grow your own portfolios of commercial claim investments . . .

Expert Advisory Services

We provide expert structuring and investment advice for individual claim opportunities or firm-wide portfolio management needs. We’ll help you avoid the myriad ethical and other complicated issues that can arise when you’re arranging finance for your clients. Ultimately, we bring a new level of choice and transparency that allows law firms and their clients to choose the best risk-mitigation structure . . .

Purple Papers

It is common sense: lawyers put themselves at unnecessary risk when placing litigation finance for their clients. The conflicts-of-interest and other ethics dangers are obvious, and sound business practice should not be overlooked. Can the lawyer expertly handle the ALF project? Is it cost-efficient for the lawyer to focus on a complex funding transaction rather than the underlying litigation? Shouldn’t lawyers, particularly specialists at major law firms, “stick to their knitting”?
