Litigation funding for us is security of cash flow. There is a huge danger now that if you take on litigation and you lose - and it does happen - you're never going to get paid. Indeed, there are dangers on a CFA case that even when you win you don't get paid.
Brett has been funding litigation since 2006 and founded Harbour with Susan Dunn.
A qualified English and New York solicitor, and a barrister and solicitor in Ontario Canada, Brett practiced principally in London and New York with Shearman & Sterling before co-founding Harbour.
Prior to Harbour, Brett was a member of senior management of a $3 billion investment company. He is a former law clerk to Mr Justice Melvin L Rothman of the Quebec Court of Appeal. Brett is a regular conference speaker on litigation funding.
At Harbour Brett is a member of the Investment Committee and is responsible for risk.
