Litigation Finance

Our practice includes advising on litigation funding as well as the sale and purchase of interests in claims and judicial payment orders in Brazil (precatórios). We advise both clients who are seeking financing as well as third party investors.

Our litigation finance team includes leading lawyers who have experience acting on high value claims across a range of sectors as well as dealing with the complexities relating to the financing of disputes.

We have a strong practice relating to the international financing of claims which we have developed through our office in London, which is one of the global centres for litigation finance, and our network of offices in the main commercial centres in Brazil.

For our clients seeking financing, we work with them to assess their cases to determine which claims may be more suitable for funding. In particular, we support our clients in evaluating their cases from an investor’s perspective including identifying key risks and how they could impact on the valuation of their claims. We also work with our clients to prepare claims for presentation to funders as well as in negotiating finance agreements.

For investors, we provide assistance with due diligence reviews of potential cases for financing. We also provide advice regarding the legal, ethical, and regulatory implications of funding. In relation to funded cases, we also provide support in case management to ensure effective representation.
