A market leader in large scale
Commercial Litigation Funding

Mark Wells, Managing Partner

Mark Wells is the managing partner of Calunius Capital.

Mark’s professional career includes 20 years in investment banking, principally in the field of derivatives. Mark left the banking industry in 2006 when he became one of the founding partners of Calunius Capital with the goal of providing litigants with solutions to the financial risk of litigation and arbitration.

 

Mark’s professional life has been spent in valuing contingent assets from an investment banking point of view. He takes the view that there could be no better example of a contingent asset than a claimant’s rights in a piece of litigation or arbitration. It is therefore easy to see why Mark is so heavily involved in the assessment of the financial and valuation aspects of the cases in which Calunius has the opportunity to invest.


Mark has a degree in Engineering from Cambridge University.

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.
