How do I Apply for Litigation Finance?

Applying for litigation finance can be a lower risk way to fund a case. You can apply for litigation funding from third party funders, who would fund your case in return for a share of the winnings if your case is successful. Here’s how to apply for litigation finance.

Gather your information

When you are applying for litigation finance, its important that you collect all the necessary information for the case, it needs to be well organised and well packaged. The information you package and give to the potential funder will be used to decide if your case is eligible for funding. This is why it is so important that your case is well organised, and you have all the documents you need to prove the strength of your case. Typically, the funder will require:

  • Key documents and evidence so that the case can be analysed by in-house or external council
  • Any legal advice and options given by the legal team; the funder will need to be convinced of the value of the claim
  • Detailed budget, including potential losses, court fees, solicitors, evidence, loss of income from work, the costs of any expert witnesses likely to be required.
  • A detailed timeline setting out the anticipated process up to trail
  • Information on the respondent’s position, although this is something the funder will investigate this independently (to be confident that they can recover their investment). However, it is worth including the financial viability of the respondent and their attitudes towards the dispute.
