Commercial Litigation Funding

Litigation

The Calunius Fund offers Litigation Funding to cover the costs of commercial litigation disputes under several different national laws and jurisdictions, including:

• Common Law Jurisdictions, including:

- the UK;

- Australia, New Zealand and Canada;

- Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands;

- The Channel Islands;

- Hong Kong.

• Civil Law jurisdictions, particularly Germany and Switzerland.

In some Common Law jurisdictions, particularly in the English High Court system, the Calunius Fund can provide funding for Claimants to pay premiums for insurance policies covering the risk of adverse costs or the need to provide security for costs. In cases involving injunctions, such as asset freezing orders, security will need to be posted and from time to time, fortified. The Calunius Fund can provide specialist funding for this purpose too.

The Calunius Fund does not finance consumer disputes, divorce, libel, slander or personal injury.

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.
