In projects that we find particularly interesting, we offer our clients the chance to collaborate according to a litigation-financing model in which we assume all of the up-front costs associated with the handling of the dispute. This type of arrangement allows the client to avoid increasing its existing financial burden. The client makes no payments at all until the dispute is settled. The obligation to repay the financing only arises in the event of successful conclusion of the court case. If our work results in the dispute being resolved in favor of the client, the firm gets a certain percent of the amount actually awarded. Litigation financing is a global best practice that lets clients shed all of the risks associated with participating in lawsuits and other forms of legal conflict. By covering the costs arising from participation in the dispute, we allow our clients to invest the money they save in core business operations, thereby turning legal disputes from a cost item into a profit-generating tool
Types of lawsuits that we find particularly interesting:
- Disputes with government agencies;
- Disputes with companies featuring public participation;
- Disputes with banks;
- Disputes with insurance companies;
- Disputes with foreign companies holding Russian assets;
- Disputes with major Russian companies.
