Partnering with NGOs and Charities

Supporting NGOs & Charities with their valuable work.

NGOs & charities can greatly benefit from the support of litigation funding

NGOs and charities are increasingly turning to litigation funding to support their work due to rising legal costs and the complexity of legal challenges they face, necessitating financial resources beyond their traditional funding streams. Additionally, litigation funding enables NGOs and charities to leverage legal strategies as powerful tools for advocacy, social change, and holding powerful entities accountable, thereby amplifying their impact and advancing their mission in pursuit of justice and equity.

Why are more NGOs and charities
turning to litigation funding for support?

  • Financial Resources: Access to funding enables NGOs and charities to pursue legal actions without bearing the full financial burden upfront, covering expenses such as legal fees, court costs, and expert witness fees.
  • Risk Management: Litigation funding helps NGOs and charities mitigate the financial risks associated with pursuing legal actions, as funding is typically non-recourse, meaning repayment is only required if the case is successful.
  • Advocacy and Impact: Litigation funding allows NGOs and charities to advance their advocacy goals and drive social change through strategic litigation, challenging laws, policies, or practices that undermine human rights, environmental protection, or social justice.
  • Access to Justice: By securing funding for legal expenses, NGOs and charities can ensure access to justice for vulnerable or marginalized communities who may not have the financial resources to pursue legal remedies independently.
  • Legal Expertise: Litigation funding often comes with access to legal expertise and resources, including experienced lawyers and litigation support services, which can enhance the effectiveness and success of legal actions pursued by NGOs and charities.
  • Levelling the Playing Field: Litigation funding enables NGOs and charities to challenge powerful opponents, such as governments or corporations, in legal disputes, levelling the playing field and increasing their chances of achieving meaningful outcomes.
  • Preventing Future Harm: Through strategic litigation funded by litigation finance companies, NGOs and charities can seek injunctive relief or court orders to halt harmful practices, prevent future harm, and protect the rights and interests of affected communities.
  • Promoting Accountability: Litigation funding supports efforts to hold individuals, organizations, or institutions accountable for wrongdoing, negligence, or violations of law, promoting transparency, accountability, and the rule of law.

Overall, NGOs and charities use litigation funding to access financial resources, manage risks, advance advocacy goals, ensure access to justice, challenge injustice, promote accountability, and drive positive social change through strategic litigation initiatives.
