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