Litigation Funding

Litigation funding is where a third party pays for the costs of your claim. In return for doing so, the funder will usually want a proportion of the proceeds if the case is successful. However, if your claim is unsuccessful then the funder won’t get anything. It is a good way of ensuring that cases, which you might not have the resources to run, are able to proceed. At Jones Whyte, we help our clients find and use litigation funding throughout Scotland.

Why Pursue Litigation Funding with Specialist Solicitors in Glasgow?

Litigation funding can take the risk out of litigation. At Jones Whyte, we will help you find litigation funding options and negotiate with your funder to arrive at the most suitable arrangement. The arrangement will usually involve your funder recovering a percentage of your damages if your claim is successful, or a multiple of the amount of money advanced by them.

Contact us today and our specialist commercial litigation solicitors will review your claim in order to get an idea of the prospects of success. If we feel that its prospects are good enough, we will make applications to litigation funders for funding. If you receive funding offers, then we’ll advise you as to which ones we think are best for you.

We work with our litigation department and our partners outside of the firm to ensure that we get the best arrangements for our clients. If you are a prospective funder, why not talk to us today? We are always seeking to widen our pool so that our clients have more to choose from.
