About Us

We are more than just litigation capital.  We partner with claimants and legal teams to obtain the best outcomes.

WHO WE ARE

Your strategic and
financial ally in litigation.

We are a team of litigators who manage private funds of over GBP 250M, investing in litigation in the UK, Australia, and other common law jurisdictions (ex. USA).

We have extensive disputes experience from the world’s leading litigation firms, strategic and financial expertise, and a deep network in the business and legal community.

We have practised in common law and civil law jurisdictions, and worked in private practice and in-house.

Our Investment Committee includes Lord David Gold and Ian Terry, two of the UK’s most experienced and distinguished litigators.

WHAT WE DO

We invest in commercial
disputes and class actions.

As a litigation funding firm, we invest in commercial disputes brought by businesses, entrepreneurs, investors and shareholders, whether individually or seeking funding for class actions, at all stages of the litigation or arbitration process.

Our capital is used by companies and law firms to cover the legal fees and disbursements associated with pursuing a claim or to support business operations.

In return for our litigation and arbitration funding – which we usually provide on a non-recourse basis – we share in any recovery obtained through settlement or ultimate adjudication of the case.

COMMUNITY

Access to justice beyond commercial disputes

Balance’s business promotes access to justice by supporting litigants who do not have the means or the capability to fund worthy litigation.

There are many litigants we cannot support on a commercial basis and so we have chosen to make an annual contribution to charities that promote access to justice for the most vulnerable individuals in our two key markets – UK and Australia.
Offers legal representation and advice to asylum seekers and refused asylum seekers appealing to the UK Asylum Support Tribunal in need of housing or financial subsistence.
Provides legal advice, assistance and representation for financially disadvantaged and vulnerable people seeking asylum in Australia. 

Balance is also committed to minimising its
impact on the environment and to helping the world get to Net Zero.

Balance has chosen to make an annual donation to Client Earth, an environmental charity which uses litigation “to fight climate change, tackle pollution, defend wildlife and protect people and planet”.
