Funding legal proceedings

We can offer innovative funding solutions such as third party funding, conditional fee agreements and damages based agreements.

We understand that the potential costs involved can be a major deterrent to bringing or defending legal proceedings even where there is a good chance of succeeding.  Cost can be the single largest factor in deciding whether or not to bring or defend a case.

Above all, our clients want to retain control of the dispute resolution process and to have funding options that either bring some certainty to their costs exposure or allow them to offset the costs risk altogether.

We can work together with you to find funding solutions, including:

  • third party funding
  • conditional fee agreements
  • damages based agreements
  • insurance covering your own or the other side’s costs

In some cases, combining the above arrangements may mean it is possible to litigate with very little initial outlay, ongoing cost or costs risk.

For further information about the financing options available to clients who wish to bring or defend legal proceedings, and answers to some common questions about each, download our guide to funding legal proceedings.
