Thank-you for all your hard work in the early stages. Without the funding from Harbour Litigation Funding our claims could never have got off the ground.


Welcome to Harbour Litigation Funding

Harbour provides Litigation Funding to finance part, or all, of the costs of any type of commercial litigation or arbitration.  In return Harbour receives a share of the proceeds of the case but only if  there is a successful outcome.

Harbour Litigation Funding works alongside claimants and lawyers to bring good  cases to a successful conclusion. Claimants can also approach us directly. For some companies Litigation Funding frees up capital for other business purposes. For others, Litigation Funding allows good cases (to be pursued) that would otherwise not be able to proceed due to lack of funds.

Litigation Funding pays for all of the costs charged by your solicitors, barristers or experts to conduct your case.  Harbour Litigation Funding will also cover any adverse (or opponents’) costs and all other costs necessary for the case to be a success.

If Harbour funds your case, you effectively transfer the financial risk of losing to us.  If your case is unsuccessful, you will not have to repay us the money we have invested in your case. We are only paid if the case is successful. For more details, please see Litigation Funding  which includes  case criteria, types of cases and frequently asked questions.

Within our dedicated investment funds we have capital immediately at hand to fund cases through to completion. Our case studies illustrate our financial ability and commitment to seeing claims through to conclusion.

We charge you a percentage of what you recover if you are successful.  We do not have standard charges because each case is different.
