Claims Funding Australia was established to provide financial support to Australian businesses seeking remedies to corporate wrongdoing. We are able to offer clients all the benefits of strong financial backing, risk mitigation, and extensive experience in commercial litigation. Backed by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, one of Australia’s most successful national law firms, Claims Funding Australia provides capital and strategic advice to clients ranging from individual investors and small start-ups, to ASX listed companies.
Litigation funding provides an alternative legal avenue in circumstances where the cost of litigation may be prohibitive for your business to pursue alone. We take on the risk; our clients only pay from the award or settlement sum they receive when the case is successful.
We are backed by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, one of Australia’s most successful national law firms, who guarantee us in relation to all funding obligations and whose lawyers advise us on funding matters.
Why Claims Funding Australia
We take the risk out of commercial litigation because our clients only pay if they obtain a successful outcome. With claims funding, Australian businesses and individuals get access to justice that might otherwise be out of reach financially. Maurice Blackburn’s financial backing ensures our clients are always protected.
Expert legal strategy
We’re owned and advised by lawyers with a solid understanding of the risks and costs of litigation, and our strategic partnership with Maurice Blackburn Lawyers gives us direct access to highly experienced litigators who provide sound strategic and tactical advice.
With Maurice Blackburn’s financial backing, we’re able to fund complex and expensive cases. We have the capital reserves to fully fund your claim through to completion – including paying the other side’s costs in the event of a loss.
Costs agreed up front
We negotiate a funding agreement up front for every case to meet both our client’s needs and those of Claims Funding Australia. This includes a funding commission – an agreed percentage of the award or settlement sum – that depends on the merits of the claim, the costs involved and the potential adverse costs in the event of a loss.
Who we are
Claims Funding Australia is a commercial litigation funding organisation that provides financial support to Australian businesses seeking remedies to wrongs.
Established as a means for Australian businesses to access the benefits of strong financial backing, risk mitigation and extensive experience in commercial litigation cases, Claims Funding Australia provides the resources and support for plaintiffs and applicants to successfully challenge corporate misconduct.
When we fund a commercial case, we take on the risk – our clients only pay if we succeed. We commit to pay the legal costs incurred in prosecuting the claim, including any costs awarded against our client if the claim is unsuccessful.
If the case is successful and damages are recovered, our client pays the cost of the claim, as well as a funding commission, from the award or settlement sum they receive.
Claims Funding Australia is backed by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers – Australia’s leading social justice law firm – guaranteeing us in relation to all funding obligations and providing expert advice in funding matters.
