Litigation funding solutions 

Pressure on legal budgets and the availability of assets can have a huge impact on your commercial ability and willingness to pursue otherwise legitimate claims that you deserve to win. 

We are willing to work with clients to develop individually tailored funding solutions designed to turn your liabilities into assets, keep litigation budgets to a minimum and free up critical capital for growth.

We start by reviewing your claim. In appropriate cases where we believe a claim is likely to succeed we are experienced in conducting litigation “at risk”. This approach will minimise costs to you with our fees and expenses recovered upon the successful outcome of the claim. We also have strong relationships with third party litigation funders and after-the-event insurers and a track record of obtaining funding and insurance to enable you to pursue your claims and mitigate associated risks.

Who do we help?

We regularly act for domestic and international clients, coordinating actions across jurisdictions where several countries are involved.
