Innovative funding solutions for litigations, arbitrations and dispute resolutions

Claim Capital Litigation Partners (CCLP)

Over the last decades the number of litigations in the Netherlands and Western Europe has grown significantly and so has the need for funding. CCLP has recently entered into the market of litigation finance, and is backed, among others, by a major USA litigation fund. CCLP will assists those who have legitimate claims, but do not have the means, or the disposition, to pursue them.

What is litigation funding?

Every company may from time to time run into conflicts and disputes.  Such conflicts and resultant claims may arise out of contract breaches, business torts, professional mal practices, anti-competition cases, intellectual property infringements, bankruptcies and insolvencies. Claimants may not always be able or willing to invest their time and money, even when there’s a high chance of a positive outcome. This is where CCLP can step in.

Steps of litigation funding at CCLP

  1. Claim presentation through counsel, broker or directly, but preferably through the client’s lawyer.
  2. Quick scan of the case based on set requirements. If evaluated positively the case will be reviewed in detail.
  3. Claim acceptance by CCLP. Client receives a detailed proposal for funding.
  4. A personal appointment takes place between CCLP and the client prior to reaching a funding agreement.
  5. If the proposal is accepted, the client is assigned an account manager and the legal process will be started.
  6. Result of litigation: No negative financial consequences for the client, regardless of the outcome of the claim. The funder will either receive the agreed part of the claim or lose its investment.
