But what is Litigation Funding?

Litigation funding removes the financial risk of litigation for claimants. Litigation funding enables a party to litigate or arbitrate without having to pay for it. A third party professional funder can pay some or all of the costs/expenses associated with a dispute in return for a share of the proceeds if it is successful. If the litigation is not successful, the funder bears the costs it has agreed to fund.

Litigation funding is a valuable resource for any person or company that

  • Has inadequate funds to prosecute a claim
  • Wants to de-risk the financial burden of litigation including the risk of paying the other side‚Äôs costs
  • Wants to free up capital for other business purposes
  • Wants to meet a security for costs order
  • Wants to ensure their claim is appropriately resourced and prosecuted
  • Has a claim that is best prosecuted as part of a group or class
