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.
