We finance litigation and arbitration

Law firms and corporates want certainty of funding, guaranteed throughout the life of the case. They want to work with responsive funding partners. That is what we offer.

We pay all costs of a dispute on time. If the case is won and monies received, we take our pre-agreed share of the proceeds. If the case is lost, the loss is Harbour’s – not the claimant’s. Harbour does not control the legal team running a claim or discussing settlement. We also offer access to a competitively priced, bespoke ATE insurance facility.

Harbour’s team has lead the way in best practice in dispute funding globally. We work with law firms and clients to eliminate exposure to the cost of legal disputes through innovative solutions.

Unrivalled. Unfazed. Uncomplicated.

Harbour has been instrumental in shaping the third party funding landscape. Our team, one of the largest globally, has been funding disputes since 2002 and has funded over 150 commercial claims globally. Substantial funding is immediately available.

We are lawyers who understand your claim. Our wealth of expertise and resilience means we are not afraid to deal with difficult issues when they arise, as they inevitably do in the unpredictable world of disputes.

Our criteria are simple and obtaining funding is straightforward.

Bench strength: scale and skill

Harbour’s litigation and arbitration funding solutions, combined with its in-depth specialist knowledge and experience – drawn from top legal, financial and commercial talent – help claimants reach the outcome they seek.
