Helping you fund disputes on a risk-free basis

DLA Piper has launched Aldersgate Funding Limited (AFL), unlocking GBP150m to fund your litigation or arbitration claims. Independent of DLA Piper and backed by AIM listed Litigation Capital Management (LCM), AFL offers excellent funding terms driven through its portfolio structure.

AFL lets you pursue claims on a risk-free basis that previously you might have been unable or unwilling to bring because of the costs – or the risk of failure.

Why AFL?

  • It's risk free - you pay nothing if the claim fails. Your legal bills will be paid in full, while ATE insurance will be used to cover the other side's costs, reducing your risk exposure to zero.
  • Excellent funding terms - AFL's portfolio funding product offers you highly competitive terms through the use of a portfolio structure.
  • Faster than market turnaround - the target time for AFL to approve funding is four weeks from the formal funding request.
  • International reach - AFL funding is available for you around the world (subject to local laws and regulations).
