Commercial Litigation Funding

The Calunius Funds provide finance for the legal and associated costs of large international arbitration and litigation disputes, enabling businesses and individuals to manage the financial risk of enforcing their meritorious commercial claims through legal action.

Arbitration and litigation funding generally covers the payment in full of lawyers, experts and court fees.  The Calunius Funds will also make provision for adverse costs to be covered in the event that proceedings are unsuccessful and the costs of the other side have to be paid.

In suitable cases, in addition to funding legal costs, the Calunius Funds can also provide corporate funding to assist businesses to manage their cash flows during sometimes lengthy proceedings.

The Calunius Funds hold more than £200million in capital commitments on behalf of our investors, with whom co-investment and syndication structures are in place that mean that no case is too large for the Calunius Funds.

The combined litigation funding experience of the London team at Calunius Capital extends over more than 40 years.  The members of the team have committed tens of millions of pounds of funding for litigation and arbitration costs since 2000, including cases of exceptional size and complexity.

The international reach of business disputes has led to Calunius funded cases being heard all over the world, including in London, Paris, Washington DC, Amsterdam, Munich, Dusseldorf and Helsinki.

All enquiries for litigation funding from the Calunius Funds should be sent to Calunius Capital, where you will find the team to be both approachable and knowledgeable.

AIPN Event "Arbitration Strategy and Funding"

London, 18 October 2017

Calunius chairman Leslie Perrin will participate in a panel discussion on "Arbitration Strategy and Funding" hosted by the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN). The last several years have witnessed a tremendous increase in the participation of third-party funders in both international commercial and investor-state arbitration. Now more than ever, claimants are seeking external funding, either because they lack the necessary funds to commence arbitration proceedings or because they want to sustain cash-flow and offset the risk of uncertain arbitration outcomes. The panel will discuss the hotly debated topics associated with third-party funding and provide an update on the latest funding products in the market.
