For Business

We provide non-recourse finance and strategic support for your litigation. You run your business.

FOR BUSINESS

We fund your litigation.
You focus on your business.

The challenge of managing tighter legal budgets and the rising costs of pursuing claims require business leaders to think differently about litigation.

Increasing numbers of general counsel and finance directors are turning to litigation finance as a way to fund valuable commercial claims, usually on a non-recourse basis.

We provide litigation finance to businesses, entrepreneurs, investors and shareholders – some well-resourced, others facing capital constraints, often as a direct result of the conduct of their counterparty to a commercial claim.

Litigation finance provides accounting benefits, taking litigation costs off the balance sheet and increasing underlying earnings.

We help claimants by

 
Providing litigation expertise - not just money for litigation costs.
 
Assuming the financial burden and risks of litigation, levelling the playing field and enabling the pursuit of claims that would otherwise not be realised.
Providing independent validation of your claim.
 
Enabling businesses to remove the adverse accounting effects of litigation from financial statements.
 
Advising on legal teams and case management issues.
Unlocking some of the contingent value of your claim to support business operations.

WHY US

Why corporates partner with us

Seed-funding

We can provide seed-funding to pay for an independent expert or counsel opinion to test the viability of your client's case.

Non-recourse finance

Our finance is generally provided on a non-recourse basis – if the claim is unsuccessful, we are owed nothing.  The capital can be used to fund litigation or support business operations.

Partnerships with leading law firms

We have strong relationships with leading law firms and can assist businesses in finding the most appropriate legal team, agreeing and managing budgets, and devising case management strategies. We strike the right balance between providing assistance and letting you and your lawyers get on with running your case.

Tailored solutions on flexible terms

We provide finance that is tailored to your dispute and your particular requirements.  We offer full or partial legal fee funding, and disbursement-only funding arrangements.  We can invest at any stage of the dispute.

Favourable accounting treatment

Our financing solutions can remove the adverse effects of litigation expenses from your financial statements.  Our funding can transform a claim requiring an indefinite cash commitment over an unknown period of time into a pursuit that involves zero financial outlay with only potential upside.

Litigation without the financial risk

Our finance solutions, coupled with After-The-Event insurance on preferred terms, can eliminate the financial risk of pursuing commercial claims.

ALF Code of Conduct compliant

We comply with the Association of Litigation Funders’ Code of Conduct that sets capital adequacy requirements and preserves the claimant’s control over case strategy and settlement decisions.

Level the playing field

Our capital and strategic expertise can restore balance to the adjudication of a dispute, levelling the playing field to promote earlier settlements and outcomes based on merits.

Independent case support

We are a team of experienced litigators. When requested to do so, we can provide valuable independent advice on strategy.  We are here to help.
