Formed in 2007, Harbour is a member of the Association of Litigation Funders of England & Wales (ALF) and complies with the directions of its Code of Conduct.
A provider of litigation risk management and financing solutions, Harbour funds up to 100% of the costs of disputes. Like some other litigation funding providers, if the case is settled or won, provided monies are collected, Harbour receives its investment return as a pre-agreed share of the proceeds. Harbour pays the legal bills for the life of the claim.
Neither the claimant nor the law firm need to reimburse Harbour for its investment made in the case, should the case prove to be unsuccessful. Harbour supports corporates to hedge risk and free up working capital for other purposes.
