A market leader in large scale
Commercial Litigation Funding

Leslie Perrin, Chairman

Leslie Perrin is the Chairman of Calunius Capital LLP, an office he has held since January 2009.

Leslie is also the Chairman of the Association of Litigation Funders of England and Wales, since its establishment in November 2011 and in that capacity is deeply involved in the development of litigation funding as an international phenomenon.

Leslie has more than 30 years' experience of litigation markets, having been successively head of litigation, managing partner and senior partner at international law firm, Osborne Clarke. One of his cases still holds the record for a UK jury award of defamation damages against an insured defendant. In other cases, he became recognised as one of the pioneers of group actions in the UK.

He acts part-time as the Senior Independent Director of DAS, the UK market leader in legal expenses insurance.

Back in March 2012, Leslie was named as one of The Times Law 100, said by The Times to be “a snapshot of those lawyers we believe to be the most influential in society right now".

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.
