Litigation finance for private equity & venture capital
We fund the litigation. Your portfolio company focuses on its business.
Capital allocation constraints in private equity, venture capital and corporate venturing can leave valuable commercial claims unfunded in portfolio companies.
Use our litigation funding to de-risk the litigation and our team’s expertise to boost your litigation strategy, all the while protecting capital ratios and eliminating “above the line” litigation expenses.
5 benefits of litigation funding for PE & VC portfolio companies
1. Litigation without the financial risk
We meet the costs of litigation on behalf of the portfolio company on a non-recourse basis, including After-The-Event insurance premiums to cover adverse costs, eliminating the financial risk of pursuing commercial claims.
2. Overcome capital allocation constraints
Use our non-recourse finance to pay the legal costs, and keep your equity investment focused on delivering the portfolio company’s business plan. Our finance leaves capital ratios intact.
3. Independent strategic support
We are more than just capital. We are a team of experienced litigators. We can provide valuable independent views on strategy and are here to help.
4. Favourable accounting treatment
Our funding eliminates recurring external litigation costs, increasing underlying earnings which may support a higher exit valuation.
5. Simplified M&A
Transfer external litigation costs to us instead of the buyer, simplifying disclosures and the negotiation of related warranties. The buyer acquires a target with a potential monetary or strategic windfall if the litigation is successful, without inheriting any cash cost.
