Civil Litigation Funding Scheme

Our loans for civil litigation cases allow for funds to be paid as they occur, while still operating on a no-win, no-fee basis. The loans are backed by an ATE premium, funded from the client loan, so expenses are covered in the event the client's case is unsuccessful. It is recovered from the opponent in the case of a win.

The loan belongs to the client, not the solicitor, so it won’t appear on your balance sheet or have any debt implications for your firm.

Our civil litigation loan scheme is intermediated by our preferred legal cost firm partner and backed by A-rated insurers. To be considered for the scheme, firms are required to have multiple similar civil litigation cases at any one time. 

  • CCA (Consumer Credit Act) client loans to pay third party disbursements
  • Unserviced loan
  • No personal guarantee or security needed from the law firm
  • Wide range of disbursements covered, including issue fees
  • Off-balance sheet funding for the law firm
  • Backed with ATE insurance; nothing for the client to pay in the event of a no-win
