Our investment criteria

The Legal Merits

  • Although we are not restricted to a specific claim type, your claim must have a strong likelihood of success. Your application must be accompanied by an opinion of your prospects either from a suitable independent counsel or the instructed law firm
  • We will undertake our own independent evaluation of your case to decide whether it meets our risk profile

Finances

  • We will consider minimum investments of £500,000 and above, which can be spread across a number of claims or claimants in consumer or bulk matters
  • There is no maximum investment
  • Provable damages should be no less than 8x the size of our investment. Accordingly, we will not be able to consider claims with a quantum of less than £4m

Enforcement

  • The opposing party must have the ability to pay and there must be a clear indication of recovering the damages
  • The legal opinion that you provide regarding the legal merits of the case must also outline the route to enforcement and any associated risks
  • We will undertake our own assessment before making an investment decision

Jurisdictions

We cover actions in the following jurisdictions:

Courts

  • England and Wales;
  • Offshore – i.e. British Overseas Territories (e.g. Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, and the Cayman Islands), and Crown Dependencies (e.g. Jersey and Guernsey);
  • other select common law jurisdictions;
  • select EU States

Other forms of dispute resolution

  • Major international arbitration centres (including, but not limited to ICC, LCIA, ICSID, SIAC, HKIAC, SCC, ICDR, DIS)
