Commercial Litigation Funding

Who uses Litigation Funding?

Some potential Claimants will choose not to litigate because they are unable to raise the finance to do so effectively. On the other hand, even the most solvent business entity may choose not to litigate because they are unwilling to accept the financial risks of doing so; the “good money after bad” principle. And why should they be other than reluctant?

The only true certainties about litigation is that costs will be high, impossible to predict and hard to manage, plus, in the many common law jurisdictions, those same terrible certainties will also apply to the other side’s costs which will have to be paid if the litigation is lost. Then there is the further certainty; that litigation outcomes are uncertain.

The wonder is not that all Claimants do not enforce their rights but that any of them actually choose to do so.
