Litigation finance 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 and by offering our team’s dispute resolution expertise if required.

Law firms use our capital to retain new clients, expand their conditional- and contingent-fee books, and to manage their risk and cash flow.

We regularly support the business development efforts of our partner law firms by participating in joint pitches for new cases and by making direct client referrals when our clients’ cases need lawyers.

Why law firms partner with us


    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.


    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.


    Our market-leading case origination strategy gives us first access to clients and high-value cases that need lawyers.


    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 finance case portfolios, in whole or in part, enabling firms to expand their contingency fee books whilst also reducing their overall risk.


    We can fund your client’s “After-the-Event” (ATE) premiums.
