Access to sufficient funds and concern about the financial consequences of an unsuccessful result can often be barriers to the pursuit of an otherwise sound litigation strategy. Slater & Gordon is uniquely positioned to assist you to access “litigation funding”.
Industry Knowledge & Relationships
As a frequent user, Slater & Gordon understands the contemporary litigation funding market and maintains strong relationships with a number of domestic and international funders. We can match your needs with appropriate litigation funders depending on the nature and size of the project and the risk-return paradigm. We then liaise with litigation funders on your behalf with the goal of securing the best available arrangement.
As a source of high profile work for litigation funders, we can exercise some leverage over their pricing and terms and conditions. We utilise tenders to create competition and consider syndication where appropriate; all with the potential to reduce pricing.
Slater & Gordon has an unparalleled track record of entrepreneurship and innovation in litigation which extends to our dealings with litigation funders.
Risk Sharing & Pricing Strategies
We understand that cost is a key driver of price in litigation funding. We are willing to consider strategies aimed at containing litigation costs including modified hourly rates, defined budgets and deferred fees.
Slater & Gordon is experienced in managing the litigation process – however complex; dealing with activity authorisation, reporting and litigation funder involvement whilst maintaining the lawyer-client relationship.
