Commercial Litigation Funding

Litigation Funding

Litigation Funding from the Calunius Fund enables Claimants in litigation or arbitration to manage their costs risks. Those costs risks include lawyers’ fees, the costs of expert witnesses, Court fees and other expenses, including the possibility of having to pay the other side’s costs if the claim is unsuccessful.

Litigation Funding is entirely success-dependent. If the claim turns out to be unsuccessful and the Claimant has performed its obligations, there is nothing to pay.

Calunius’ return from successful cases normally comes in the form of either a multiple of the sums invested or a percentage of the damages paid.

There is a major advantage when Claimants secure Litigation Funding from The Calunius Fund. Whilst there is no obligation to notify the other parties to litigation that the Claimant has secured Litigation Funding, Defendants to a claim that is understood to be supported by the Calunius Fund will know that the case against them has been professionally appraised and approved by experts independent of the Claimant, both as to the merits and as to quantum.

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.
