We know that our clients want legal expertise delivered in a way that meets their personal and commercial needs. This means thinking creatively about the way we help our clients to fund litigation and is why we have developed dwf fundlit »

Funding litigation

Our approach is straightforward. We have an impressive track record of providing our clients with the full range of litigation funding solutions. Everything from the certainty provided by hourly rates and fixed fees through to sharing the risk with conditional fee agreements, damages-based agreements, third party funding and after-the-event insurance*. We work hard to make the process as effective, efficient and ultimately successful as possible.

Clients that have taken advantage of the benefits and choice afforded by fundlit range from individual private clients and entrepreneurs to multinational PLCs and insurers. All have obtained a commercial and litigation advantage from our innovative approach to litigation funding which applies to the entire range of our litigation services, from corporate and commercial disputes to inheritance, real estate and insolvency disputes.
