Nivalion focuses on funding business-to-business (B2B) disputes including complex commercial litigation and arbitration, patent infringement litigation, antitrust proceedings, insolvency litigation, collective consumer actions, and investment treaty disputes. In addition, Nivalion supports individuals in pursuing high-volume claims.

Nivalion’s international team includes disputes lawyers with decades of courtroom and arbitration experience as well as financial specialists with extensive experience in legal finance in various sectors including insurance and aviation. This experience and related insights are available to clients and their legal counsel as a resource, but Nivalion does not interfere with case strategy, management or decision making.

Nivalion is committed to responsible funding of strong claims and to creating and maintaining lasting relationships as a fair and reliable partner with all stakeholders. Nivalion is a member and Marcel Wegmüller (Nivalion Co-CEO and Co-Founder) sits on the Board of Directors and on the ExecutiveCommittee of the International Legal Finance Association (ILFA), a non-profit trade association promoting the highest standards of operation and service for the commercial legal finance sector. Nivalion has committed to uphold the best practice principles of the ILFA and of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), as well as the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) Guidelines for Third Party Funders.

Nivalion provides traditional legal funding solutions and has been at the forefront of developments in the field, working with parties and law firms to find innovative solutions that promote access to justice and help them manage their financial exposure and liquidity.

Nivalion supports parties in the pursuit of strong arbitration and litigation claims and defences by underwriting all costs of the proceedings, including adverse cost risk.

Companies are thereby able to better focus on their operations and deploy capital in their core business.
