What Is Legal Finance?
History shows that legal funding has been practiced for over a millennia, traced back to Ancient Greek and Roman times. Legal funding, which has been permitted in England and Wales since 1967, can also be known as third party funding or legal financing. The practice enables a party to litigate or arbitrate without having to pay for it themselves. By taking a ‘loan’ or ‘funding solution’ with a third party professional funder, some or all of the costs/expenses associated with a dispute are covered, in return for a fee or a share of the proceeds if the litigation is successful. If the litigation is not successful, the funder bears the costs.
What We Offer
We cover four main areas of legal funding. Our products are tailored to suit the needs of the respective clients.
Our products are available on an individual case basis, where Affiniti Finance’s team complete case by case underwriting, or on a delegated underwriting authority to approved law firms. Please see further information on the product specific pages for the options available for law firms.
