Am I eligible for funding a claim against a director?

Not every claim will be eligible for litigation finance, so whether or not you are able to get litigation finance will depend upon the strength and size of your claim. Because third-party funders will only get their money back if the case wins, the funder will need to be confident in the strength of your claim. The size of your claim will also be important to consider as the potential winnings will need to be enough for the funder to get back their investment.
