Legal financing is a new field for Russia. Still its growth is dramatic. More and more businesses and individuals are using the model. For many of them legal financing has actually become the only way to call top level lawyers and experts, and to get a lawsuit to the court. Abroad, big funds with billions in turnover have been functioning in the field since long ago. What about Russia? Even though the field is very young here, first significant results do exist.
