La Vanguardia, “Ramco or how to litigate without money or without risk”

Spain is an emerging market for litigation funding and ligation and arbitration proceedings arise in sectors of high interest to investors, such as renewables, competition law or banking, among others

Cristina Soler, Managing Partner of Ramco Litigation Funding
Expansión, “Litigation Funds become strong in Spain”

Litigation funding was initially consolidated in sectors where litigation is particularly costly, due to the need for professional technical specialization and the special economic relevance of the debate and claims at stake

FAQs

Frequently asked questions

What is Litigation Funding?2022-01-19T12:09:31+01:00

Litigation funding (also known in the UK as Third Party Funding) is a form of litigation financing which involves the funder paying some or all of a party’s legal costs of pursuing a claim in return for a share of the proceeds on success. 

What happens if the case is not successful, will I have to repay some money?2022-01-27T10:05:35+01:00

No. The litigation funder only gets paid if your case is successful and damages have been obtained. Litigation funding is non-recourse if the case fails.

How do I apply for Litigation Funding?2022-01-19T12:19:39+01:00

We invite clients to contact RAMCO by email or telephone and make an enquiry under a confidentiality agreement. We usually request a summary of the case from the lawyers, including details of the claim, the amount of the claim and the budget for pursuing the claim, together with details of the defendants. 

What about privilege?2022-01-19T16:14:50+01:00

Privilege protects communications between the parties and the lawyers. We therefore ask all claimants to sign our NDA as soon as they start sharing information with us.

Litigation and Arbitration Funding

A new asset class

The claimant’s perspective

A claim with reasonable prospects of success is a business asset. While a company may not be able to reflect the prospective value of a claim in its financial statements, it has a value which access to litigation funding may help to unlock.

While initially third party funding was generally confined to claimants with limited resources, in recent years, even large companies with more than adequate cash resources have been using this funding mechanism on a recurring basis, with the objective of maximising the value and profitability of their litigation assets.

Third-party funding can be used at any stage of the judicial or arbitration proceedings and even when the claimant has already exhausted its own resources in the early stages of the proceedings.

The law firm perspective

Leading law firms face increasing competition in maintaining client relationships. Major law firms are looking for ways to take on more cases and to secure more revenue through alternative fee structures.

Litigation funding provides law firms with the resources to generate new cases and respond to the needs of their clients. Through litigation funding, the claimant can maintain the hourly rate relationship with its lawyers of choice, knowing that the necessary resources will be allocated to the case and the best experts engaged to make the case a success.

The investor’s perspective

Litigation finance is an alternative asset class, with the clear potential to deliver substantial uncorrelated returns.
