Q. How does third-party litigation funding work?

We’ve put together an everything-you-need-know litigation funding guide for your convenience. You can find it here.

Q. As a claimant, do I have to contribute to the costs of litigation?

No. MLS will cover all costs necessary to complete the claim. You can, however, voluntarily contribute towards the case. Your contribution means that you get to keep more of the money you recover should the claim be successful.

If you do choose to contribute towards the costs of the claim, you can protect up to 90 per cent of your financial contribution via our enhanced After The Event (ATE) insurance policy.

Feel free to contact us for further information on ATE insurance.

Q. Do I have to use an MLS-approved litigation firm?

Not at all. If you would like to source your own firm, we will carry out a routine due diligence
check to ensure that your case is in the hands of a reputable and effective lawyer.

If you are struggling to find a firm, or you would like us to find one for you, we are happy to refer you to an experienced lawyer who will suit your claim type and budget.

Q. Will I be forced to accept a settlement offer?

No. You reserve your right to accept or decline a
settlement offer. We do insist, however, that claimants act reasonably in the
consideration of an offer, and that they take advice from their solicitor on
whether a settlement is reasonable.

Q. How much does it cost to complete the MLS funding application?

The application itself is free. However, in preparation for your case you may need to undertake a review of the claim with a lawyer to test its validity.

While the costs for this will usually be covered by the claimant, MLS can, in some circumstances, include these as part of the pre-arranged budget plan.

For more information on this policy, please contact us.

Q. I have lost my case. Do I have any liability for MLS or the defendant?

No. All MLS funding is supplied on a non-recourse basis. If the claim is unsuccessful, MLS will not seek to recover its investment from the claimant.

Q. What types of cases do you finance?

MLS is able to fund a range of actions including Professional Negligence, Insolvency, Tax, Breach of Contract, Misrepresentation, and Arbitration.
