Balance Legal Capital is a London-based provider of litigation and commercial arbitration finance, founded in 2015 by litigators from Herbert Smith Freehills and Freshfields.
Balance manages private funds of over USD $280m of capital which it invests in litigation and arbitration proceedings, focussing on commercial disputes and group actions in the UK, Australia and other common law jurisdictions (outside of the USA).
Typical claims backed by Balance include contract breaches, professional negligence, insolvency, securities and shareholder disputes, economic torts, joint venture disputes, and class actions (financial products, product liability).
Unlike many funders, Balance is independent, with total delegated authority over its investment decisions.
Balance prides itself on its speed of decision-making and deal execution, commercial flexibility and the disputes expertise of its team.
Many legal teams and funded parties appreciate the strategic value-add we can offer on a case given the depth of experience and calibre of our Investment Committee which includes Lord David Gold and Ian Terry, two of the UK’s most experienced and distinguished litigators.
