UK: Litigation Funding: An Option For Clients
Last Updated: 3 February 2014

Davenport Lyons has joined forces with Augusta Securities Limited ("Augusta"), a specialist litigation third party funder, to provide access to funding for clients with commercial litigation matters.

Augusta operates a financing facility that allows Davenport Lyons to offer a tailored financing solution to clients of all sizes. Funding is rapid and cases supported by Davenport Lyons, a pre-qualified Augusta law firm, are highly likely to be approved. Risk is shared by Augusta, Davenport Lyons (through a CFA) and the client in return for a share of the proceeds in a successful claim. Approved matters automatically qualify for adverse costs insurance at highly competitive rates.

Davenport Lyons and Augusta are independent and exclusive of each other. There is no obligation to fund any litigation through Augusta and there are many other options available to progress litigation matters. Davenport Lyons is, however, pleased to be able to offer clients access to apply for funding through this facility.

To find out if your litigation is eligible to apply for funding through the Augusta scheme, or to discuss other available options, please contact Business Group Head, Kevin Bays or Working Group Head, Nick Goldstone.
