Having de-listed from the Australian Stock Exchange and joined AIM last month, Australian litigation funder Litigation Capital Management Limited (LCM) is a new name in the UK’s burgeoning third party litigation funding market.

The move has seen LCM raise £20m from the AIM listing, resulting in a market capitalisation on admission of circa £56m. LCM’s new London office has been established based on a six-strong team from Chancery Capital, led by well-respected litigation funding expert Nick Rowles-Davies. Rowles-Davis confirmed that their focus will remain on developing direct ‘funder to client’ relationships, rather than the usual litigation funding model of only dealing via solicitors and law firms.

Commenting on Litigation Futures, Rowles-Davis said:

We don’t just sit there waiting for lawyers to come to us,” he said. “It puts us in different position in chain – we’re not just service providers…it leads to a different dynamic – we are looking at a company’s litigation and showing them how to raise cash or take it off their balance sheet…the company believes it is imminently scalable through a team that can take on a substantial number of additional projects without significantly increasing corporate overheads”

LCM’s current pipeline contains 49 projects with an estimated value to investors of £206m. The business boasts a cumulative return on invested capital over the past seven years of 138%, with 88% of settled cases being profitable have been profitable having taken an average of 27 months to complete.

With the end of the Brexit transition period now passed, there were widespread concerns amongst the UK’s delegation to the CCBE that they would be demoted to 'associate' or 'observer' status, which would have severely affected its ability to take part.

  • Japanese tyre and automotive parts manufacturer Bridgestone has threatened to take legal action against a one-man-band flooring company in Herefordshire over use of the ‘Bridgestone’ company name. The multinational corporation, the world’s second largest tyre manufacturer is headquartered in Kyobashi in Japan, and has production facilities in 24 countries. In contrast, tradesman Andy Bridgewater set up ‘Bridgestone Designs’ in his garden shed having been furloughed during the Covid-19 pandemic. Mr Bridgewater says he retrained to become a resin floor installer and invested all of his savings into setting up Bridgestone Designs two months ago. As a result, and despite the different nature and size of the two businesses, the tyre manufacturer has requested that he change the name of his company or face formal legal proceedings. Mr Bridgewater said that the similarity was pure coincidence. When setting up his business, he used... Read More

  •   Unpaid debts are an unwelcome hazard of operating in the commercial world. The reality of working life is that operating in the private sphere exposes a business to the risk that their fees will not be paid, or that the terms of an agreement are not honoured. In other words, the business will become a creditor and must attempt to recover commercial debt. It is common practice that in exchange for the delivery of a particular service or product, there is payment of a fee. This happens in a variety of contexts: the delivery of goods by a private courier; or the provision of specialist services by an individual of a particular profession or trade. Regardless of the facts, when a product or service has been provided there will be requirement for payment to be given in exchange. However when payment... Read More
