Why Litigation Funding?

Civil Justice Requires Capital

Too often, plaintiffs who lack financial resources to continue litigating are forced to settle for less than justice demands.  Defendants can leverage the cost and time of litigation as a tactic to drive final settlement figures down.  This is not the intent or design of the civil justice system.

…the costs inherent in major litigation can be crippling, and a plaintiff, lacking the resources to sustain a long fight, may be forced to abandon the case or settle on distinctly disadvantageous terms.”
