Harbour, the pioneer of third party funding
We have been instrumental in shaping the third party funding landscape worldwide. We have an in-depth understanding of litigation and arbitration which makes Harbour one of the most reliable funders globally. It is why leading law firms and corporates turn to us when they seek capital to fund their arbitration or litigation proceedings.
Our team has been funding claims since 2002. Not only do we have one of the most experienced teams, we lead the way in best practice in funding.
The Harbour team is drawn from top legal, financial and commercial talent. The people you deal with come from first-class private practices or held senior in-house positions.
A substantial amount of capital is immediately available. Our funds total HK$7.86 billion.
We also offer access to a competitively priced, bespoke ATE insurance facility. The premium can be included as part of the costs if we fund the claim.
Having funded 80+ cases under 4 arbitral rules and in 13 jurisdictions, we offer truly global geographical coverage.
Each litigation director is a specialist in one or more areas and understand your claims. We have experts in international arbitration, commercial, competition, construction, fraud, insolvency, IP, banking and finance law. We don't shy away from complex or high-value disputes.
It is this resilience and wealth of expertise that enables us to deal with difficult issues when they arise, as they inevitably do, in the unpredictable world of legal disputes, in a highly informed and professional manner.
In Harbour you will find a dependable partner who is principled, responsible and transparent. We pay legal costs on time, monthly.
Harbour does not control the legal team running a claim - nor does it get involved in any settlement negotiations.
There is absolute clarity about our terms. If the case is won and monies received, we take our pre-agreed share of the proceeds. If the case is lost, the loss is Harbour's - not the claimant's.
Our criteria are simple and obtaining funding is straightforward when all crucial information is available. Our investment committee meets every 2 weeks and approval can be granted quickly.
When Harbour funds a claim, the entire budget is ring fenced and protected from day one. This gives peace of mind, as the claimant knows its budget is guaranteed and not used for other cases.
We are aligned in wanting success for the claims we fund.
