Litigation Funding for the Solvent Company
The funding of a company’s legal claims is the context for many a debate between the General Counsel, eager to pursue a claim regarded as strong, and the CFO, unwilling to endorse the financial risk of doing so. Financial risks arising from other sources (interest rates, foreign exchange, etc.) are routinely managed by well-run businesses by hedging. The CFO will say: Why should dispute risk be any different?
For a business in this position, financially able to pursue the claim but unwilling to take the risk of doing so, Litigation Funding can take on the costs burden and give the Claimant a good net return on that asset whilst removing the risks ordinarily associated with litigation.
