Updated as of August 30, 2021.

The 4th Annual Litigation Finance (LF) Dealmakers Forum will be held on September 29-30, 2021, virtually and in-person at the Apella event venue (450 E 29th St, New York, NY 10016).

As we move forward with a hybrid conference model, we would like to communicate the significance of our health and safety protocols and precautions. We are continuously and closely working with our event venue partner, Apella, as well as following CDC guidelines to promote a comfortable, safe and enjoyable community.

These protocols are being updated regularly. Please check back for updates. We will also be communicating with registered in-person attendees prior to the event.


Due to health and safety protocols regarding the in-person experience, hybrid tickets (in-person + virtual attendance) for the 2021 LF Dealmakers Forum will be limited. Individuals can register for the virtual experience at any time. All ticket purchases, or registrations, are pending until review and approved by the Dealmakers’ internal team.


All precautions and protocols that have been set in place are to further assist in a healthy and safe environment for all attendees. Therefore, everyone in attendance, in-person, must follow all protocols and precautions set forth. Non-compliance to these protocols can forfeit your registration ticket to the event.

We will maintain a maximum capacity and density of participants in accordance with relevant official government and regional guidance, along with current social distancing protocols being implemented at the venue. All attendees are suggested to adhere to these social distancing protocols.

All filtration systems within the venue have been upgraded to MERV8 Prefilter & MERV18 Rigid Box Filters. The venue will be operating in accordance with the hygiene, cleaning, and disinfection requirements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Health (DOH) for all front and back of house areas.

If during the event an attendee is showing COVID-19 symptoms (or symptoms on the watchlist listed above) said attendee must immediately notify an event staff member on-site. The attendee can also send an email to [email protected] to communicate this notification. Upon review of the notification, our event staff will isolate said attendee and seek medical attention as necessary.
