For Law Firms
Build your practice and better serve your clients.
FOR LAW FIRMS
Use our litigation finance to
better serve your clients.
Law firms operate in a fiercely competitive environment characterised by increasing client demands and downward pressure on legal fees.
Clients now expect their lawyers to be involved in arranging litigation finance.
We give our partner law firms a competitive edge in winning work by providing financing solutions tailored to your firm and client needs.
Law firms are vital actors in identifying meritorious class actions for individuals who would otherwise be denied compensation. We are here to support that process.
We apply our independence, speed, expertise, and flexibility to give you fast funding decisions so that you can serve your client and get on with the litigation.
We help law firms by
Providing seed-funding to help test the viability of your client's case or class action.
Assisting your cash-flow management by removing client credit risk.
Sharing the risk associated with deferred fee arrangements.
Participating in joint marketing and business development initiatives.
Providing our expertise and experience, free of charge, whenever we can assist the case.
Enabling you to expand your practice by taking on new matters and clients that require finance.
Why leading law firms partner with us
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 for your clients
We offer litigation and arbitration financing, including full or partial fee, and disbursement-only funding arrangements, usually on a non-recourse basis, tailored to the particular dispute and the client’s objectives.
Case assessment support
We assist firms in deciding whether to take a case on a deferred fee basis by providing an independent merits assessment. We stand behind each positive case assessment with an offer of finance.
We partner with law firms to share risk and assist cash flow management under deferred fee arrangements with their clients.
We give our partner law firms the edge when pitching for new work or for panels. The law firm provides the legal expertise. We provide the capital to support competitive fee proposals or a complete financial solution.
ATE Insurance Premiums
We can fund your client’s “After-the-Event” (ATE) premiums.
A source of new cases
We are frequently approached by corporates or identify class action issues and high-value cases that need lawyers.
ALF Code of Conduct compliant
We comply with the Association of Litigation Funders’ Code of Conduct that sets capital adequacy requirements and rules for control over case strategy and settlement decisions.
We finance case portfolios, in whole or in part, enabling firms to expand their contingency fee books whilst also reducing their overall risk.
