Steinitz on “Incorporating Legal Claims”

In this short video, Professor Maya Steinitz discusses her article, “Incorporating Legal Claims” in which she briefly describes the concept of litigation finance, discusses the typical characterization of litigation finance under the ‘legal ethics paradigm,’ related to conflicts of interest between the plaintiff and the funding source, and argues that litigation finance should be considered using corporate governance principles to deal with conflicts of interest and litigation control, shifting from the “legal ethics paradigm” to an ‘incorporation paradigm.’ We invite you to watch.
