THE SOURCING OF OUR CASES
Fortress Legal Finance has already created a very enviable reputation both with regard to our levels of overall professionalism and our successful resourcing of Civil Litigation case funding and complementing services, such as the provision of specialist Civil Litigation Solicitors, Barristers/QC’s and by acting as the Introducing party to the providers of After the Event (“ATE”) Insurances.
We are by no means dependant on any one source for either new case enquires or for funding of the Civil Litigation cases.

a.) Cases referred to Fortress Legal Finance from our extremely close working relationships within various leading Civil Litigation Solicitor Practices (these cases emanating mainly from either Senior Partner and/or Head of Litigation levels).
b.) CCases referred to Fortress Legal Finance from our extremely close working relationships within various prominent sets of Barristers Chambers (these case referrals emanating mainly from either Development Director or Head Clerk or Senior Clerk levels) and their Barristers and QC’s.
c.)Cases received from specialist Claims Management Companies (“CMC’s”).
d.)Cases received from After the Event (“ATE”) Insurance specialists.
e.)The recommendation of our services from other Funders of Civil Litigation case on cases, where such cases fall outside of their own case funding criteria.
f.)Cases that have been obtained directly from original Claimants.
THE COST OF LITIGATION FUNDING
There are usually two methods that Litigation funders utilise in order to offer terms, these are:
Based upon a return of their investment within the case/claim as a fixed agreed % of any successful outcome (being settlement or damages) of the Commercial Civil Litigation action.
Fixed Fee Agreement
Based upon a complete return of their investment within a case/claim plus a multiplier of the amount that they have committed to invest within a claim/case.
