Commercial Claims

Litigation funding is non-recourse finance provided to claimants

Deminor supports businesses pursuing commercial litigation by providing third-party funding

Businesses undertaking commercial litigation or arbitration can leverage litigation funding (also known as third-party funding ) to access the capital needed to pursue their claims, ensuring a level playing field and potentially achieving a more favourable outcome. This financial support empowers businesses to navigate complex legal battles without undue strain on their resources.

Litigation funders (such as Deminor) pay all legal costs and do not receive any remuneration or return unless the case is successful and the claimant achieves a recovery. In the event of a recovery, the funder receives a share of the proceeds. If the case is unsuccessful, the funder loses its money, and the claimant owes nothing.

Subject to regulatory restrictions in certain jurisdictions, Deminor, as a funder, may also offer litigation management & support services in conjunction with litigation funding.

How litigation funding can be used within commercial litigation

  • Risk Management: Litigation funding allows businesses to pursue legal claims without the risk of depleting their own resources, as the funding covers legal fees and expenses.
  • Cash Flow Preservation: By securing external funding for litigation, companies can preserve their cash flow and maintain operational stability throughout the legal process.
  • Access to Justice: Litigation funding democratises access to the legal system for smaller entities or individuals who may not have the financial means to engage in costly legal battles.
  • Levelling the Playing Field: Provides smaller businesses the opportunity to stand up against larger entities with more resources, ensuring fair access to legal recourse.
  • Expertise and Strategic Insight: Litigation funders often bring their own legal expertise and strategic insights, adding value beyond just financial support to strengthen the case.
  • Enhanced Negotiating Power: Knowing that a claimant has the backing of a litigation funder can deter opponents from employing delay tactics, leading to more favourable settlement terms.
  • Contingency Planning: Offers a form of contingency planning for businesses, ensuring that they have the means to address unexpected legal challenges without impacting their strategic goals.
  • Investment in Growth: Frees up capital that can be invested in core business activities rather than being locked into legal disputes, fostering growth and innovation.
  • Litigation Portfolio Management: For entities with multiple legal claims, litigation funding can help manage a portfolio of cases, spreading risk and optimising potential returns across them.
  • Recovery of Losses: Enables businesses to aggressively pursue litigation to recover losses due to breaches of contract, negligence, or other wrongful acts without bearing the upfront costs.
  • Financial Due Diligence: Litigation funders conduct thorough due diligence before providing funding, offering an external validation of the claim's potential and helping to refine legal strategies.
  • Asset Monetisation: Allows businesses to monetise dormant or underutilised assets in the form of legal claims, turning potential liabilities into sources of revenue.
