WHAT IS LITIGATION FINANCE?

Litigation finance consists of a third party providing financing to the plaintiff of a meritorious legal claim. In turn, the party providing the capital would receive a minor portion of the proceeds of the ruling or settlement.  

WE DO WELL IF YOU DO WELL
We only get our share if the outcome of the trial is favorable. In case of loss, we do not have the right to collect anything and there is no debt at all.

I HAVE AN ALREADY ADVANCED LAWSUIT, DOES IT MAKE SENSE FOR ME?
Yes, in that case we can advance part of the estimated amount of the eventual ruling. Someone who has a lawsuit with an expectation of collecting in the future is likely to benefit from part of that capital today (for example, to make a capital investment, or use it as working capital). Litigation finance allows to bring part of that expected cash flow to the present.

I'M A LAWYER

We act as partners for lawyers by taking care of the professional fees that will allow the litigation to be carried out. In this way, lawyers ensure to:

  • KEEP CLIENTS  as there is no need anymore to turn down cases when clients cannot afford to pay their fees.

  • MITIGATE RISKS by guaranteeing upfront payment and protecting themselves against the risk of not getting paid in the event of a negative result.

  • GET LIQUIDITY without waiting for the outcome of the litigation.

At Qanlex we work with lawyers we trust. There is no subrogation of rights, meaning that the legal strategy remains in the hands of the lawyers and their clients.

We believe every lawful claim should see its day in court with the right professionals, and money should not be an impediment in doing so.

I HAVE A LEGAL CLAIM

For any plaintiff in a meritorious claim, litigation finance brings several benefits:

  • LIQUIDITY: On the one hand, it allows plaintiffs to maintain their liquidity without the need to divert funds to cover the costs of litigation without certainty of result or time of collection. In addition, for already advanced processes, part of the estimated amount of the ruling can be advanced and thus giving access to cash without having to wait for the result of the trial. This way the plaintiff keeps its liquidity and obtains predictability over its cash flows.

  • RISK MANAGEMENT: As with any other financial asset -and a lawsuit is certainly one- the use of financing is a way to diversify risk: resigning a small portion of the potential profit, the plaintiff ensures not to lose excessive capital during the trial.

  • CLEANING OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS: With litigation finance, the lawsuit ceases to appear as a liability that consumes cash and becomes an asset. Furthermore, by saving on legal costs, the company can invest that money in its own core business, achieving a positive impact on its P&L.

Our goal is to help everyone carry out meritorious claims, regardless of their capital. We are partners that provide predictability on the collection of these claims, ensuring a clear path to liquidity.

PRO-BONO: At Qanlex we are committed to helping meritorious claims see their day in court. In this sense, we not only want to help those lawsuits in which we may eventually have a reward, but also noble causes that deserve to see the light of Justice even though there is no material retribution for us.
If you have a meritorious claim that pursues the public interest, please reach out to us at info@qanlex.com.
