Ethics Opinions on Litigation Funding

Below you will find links to various ethics opinions on litigation funding. Included are the American Bar Association's opinion on litigation funding as well as many State Bar Association's opinions issued on non-recourse funding. Not all states have online resources nor have all states issued opinions on lawsuit funding. You may be able to find additional information on your state Bar Association's position by visiting their website. 

As Injury Funds Now's operations are based out of Florida, we strictly adhere to the guidelines and suggested ethics of the opinion issued by the Florida Bar Association.

American Bar Association's Opinion on Litigation Funding
The American Bar Association's opinion on litigation funding is a positive one for the industry of non-recourse funding. This article gives a good overview of ethics rules, opinions and related legal opinions in the area of litigation financing. For the most part this type of funding has been allowed.

State Bar Opinions on Non-Recourse Funding
Some states have issued opinions on litigation funding. If your state has issued a relevant opinion, we have included it in this list. It is possible that other opinions that we have not come across have been issued. If you know of any other ethics opinions relevant to lawsuit funding we invite you to contact us with that information and we will review it for inclusion on this site. 

As Injury Funds Now operates out of Florida, we strictly adhere to the guidelines and suggested ethics of the opinion issued by the Florida Bar Association.
