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.
