The Team

Harbour has one of the largest teams globally, drawn from top legal, financial and commercial talent. The people you deal with have come from first-class private practices, leading corporates or held senior in-house positions. Each litigation funding director is a specialist in one or more dispute areas. We have experts in international arbitration, class actions, commercial, competition, construction, fraud, insolvency, intellectual property, banking and finance law. We don’t shy away from complex or high-value disputes.
