Nordic Legal Finance
Offload legal risk and cost – unlock the value of legal assets
We offer funding for parties involved in disputes (litigation finance/third party funding) and special situations, as an alternative way to manage risk and cost. We may also acquire a disputed claim or bad debt – enabling a claimant or creditor to immediately realise the value thereof.
We provide financing solutions where companies or groups of shareholders/investors face substantial legal costs (e.g. law firm fees) and where legal expertise and strategy are key drivers to value.
Disputes and special situations are time-consuming and expensive, often involving lawyers, accountants and other consultants. We can take on such costs in return for a profit share in the outcome of the dispute or special situation.
A company’s risks shall be limited to its core business. Legal risks (e.g. risk of loss in disputes, adverse costs, third party risks, reputational risks, risk of bankruptcy etc.) is what we assess and invest in on a daily basis, but something that other companies would like to avoid as they may result in substantial loss, create bad publicity, jeopardize customer relations, affect or create uncertainty in respect of shareholder value or block further financing. For individual shareholders/investors a large dispute may involve a great personal risk. We can shield you from legal risk.
Legal costs and risk tie up capital. We enable companies to write-off risk from the balance sheet, which may facilitate the increase of dividends and internal rate of return as well as the release of funds to invest in new projects, etc.
