Aggregating Smaller Claims
Sometimes a number of businesses or investors may suffer losses with a common cause, perhaps as result of an investment fraud (think Madoff). In some situations those losses might not in any individual case be great enough to justify the costs risk inherent in using litigation to pursue an individual recovery.
However in aggregate, those losses can be significant and Litigation Funding could enable those losses to be recovered for all individuals in the group without any individual having to take litigation risk on behalf of others.
In fact, these groups are often a combination of those who are willing but unable, those who are able but unwilling and those who are both willing and able. Litigation Funding can accommodate such groups and will sometimes be the one thing that can get a powerful action for recovery started.
