Operating in the commercial world requires constant interaction with other people or businesses. Companies are set up, contracts are formed, goods sold, services provided and expertise sought. Occasionally these relationships can go awry and cause harm to an individual's or business's finances and reputation. Taking action when faced with a dispute can put an individual or business back to the situation they were in before their rights were infringed, or where that isn't possible, can result in a financial award to compensate for any loss.
Yet many people don't enforce their rights for fear of the costs involved. This needn't be the case. There are a variety of flexible litigation funding options, such as no win no fee agreements, that make commercial claims and dispute resolution affordable.
The cost of resolving disputes needn't prevent you from enforcing your rights. If you are involved in a business dispute, we can help you fund commercial litigation without putting your personal finances at risk.

Those found guilty of commercial-scale online copyright infringement may soon face much longer jail terms. Currently, the offence is only punishable by a maximum jail term of two years but the government in the United Kingdom (UK) has launched a consultation on plans to increase the maximum sentence to ten years.
