There is a lot of incentive to settle legal disputes without going to trial due to high costs -- which is where this lawsuit funding platform comes in. Based out of New York, LexShares is a crowdfunding site that allows investors to help out those who can't afford expensive legal battles. By allowing anyone to crowdfund their lawsuit, people have the opportunity to invest in the justice system and also earn a return from financing litigation.

The lawsuit funding platform gives users exclusive access to expert cases and enables them to finance their own. Through LexShares you can also track progress in the courtroom. If the plaintiff you back wins, you get a portion of the recovery. The litigation finance service specializes in cases between small businesses and large corporations.
