In a recent issue of Net Interest, Marc Rubinstein and Bruce Packard take a close look at litigation finance.
In April 2021, AxiaFunder is raising funding for its first case outside the UK – a high-value claim of copyright infringement that is going to be filed in Barcelona Commercial Court.
Cormac Leech, director of AxiaFunder, discusses the company’s general approach and how crowdfunding platforms should be considered in the context of the code of the Association of Litigation Funders. The podcast also discusses AxiaFunder’s current priorities.
Using a platform to fund commercial litigation is a novel approach which, by necessity, requires careful consideration by solicitors and claimants before proceeding. One lens through which to evaluate litigation crowdfunding is the Code of the Association of Litigation Funders (ALF).

Litigation funding is an interesting investment opportunity, mainly for diversifying and generating high returns, but which also carries its risks. As long as an investor knows what he is doing, the author believes these waters can be navigated with success.

At the time of writing, October 2020, 10 cases have been funded through the platform, 8 of which are still ongoing and 2 have been successfully resolved. The latter cases generated a 43% and 94% return on investment in 8 and 15 months, respectively.
AxiaFunder has assisted with a secondary market trade of litigation funding assets which closed today. The assets were sold to 12 investors, at a 20% premium to the original issuance price in December 2019.
In this podcast, Jean Galea and Joseph Galea meet Cormac Leech from AxiaFunder to discuss how investors can potentially make money from litigation cases.

AxiaFunder, a new platform for crowdfunding litigation based in the UK, was launched earlier this January. The first case offered from AxiaFunder has already been fully funded. It was a dispute concerning professional negligence that was looking to raise £12,720. Investors can expect a return of 60% per annum if the case is successfully resolved. Across all cases AxiaFunder predicts a return that will be on average within the 20-30% range. This is still a very high return when compared even to other alternative finance investments.

The growing popularity of litigation finance has been fuelled by billions of dollars from hedge funds, private equity and other institutional investors. Now a crowdfunding platform due to launch in the UK early next month is hoping to spread the word — and the high returns - to private investors. In recent years, money has been pouring into litigation finance businesses, which provide upfront funding for claimants who cannot afford to fight legal disputes in return for a share of any settlement or damages.
