The advisory committee on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is considering proposed amendments to Rule 26 that would require disclosure of litigation financing arrangements. Specifically, the proposal would require disclosure of any agreement under which any person, other than an attorney permitted to charge a contingent fee representing a party, has a right to receive compensation that is contingent on, and sourced from, any proceeds of a civil action. Travis Lenkner, a senior advisor at litigation finance firm Burford Capital, and John Beisner, a partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP will join us to discuss the proposal.
