Litigation funding brokers TheJudge have launched five new websites specifically tailored to individual areas of litigation. www.TheJudge.co.uk  remains the company’s main cornerstone website for commercial litigators but we’ve now launched what we are calling our sub-terminals websites:
- www.arbitration-funding.com  is our specialist international arbitration funding site
- www.competitionlitigationfunding.co.uk  is our specialist antitrust site
- www.insolvencylitigationfunding.com  is our site tailored for insolvency practitioners and lawyers
- www.patentlitigationfunding.com  is our main intellectual property site with a patent bias, reflecting the fact that the vast majority of our IP cases are patent based.
Having these individual terminals will enable us to provide content rich information that is relevant to the lawyers in that practice area, including regularly updated cases studies, news articles and other useful information. James Delaney, director at TheJudge, says “the funding issues faced by liquidators versus say a patent litigator are often vastly different. Similarly, investment treaty arbitrators will face very different issues to say those faced by an antitrust lawyer managing a group of claimants pursuing a follow-on claim. Our aim is to make some of the more intricate funding issues visible for these specialist areas, which collectively make up the volume of TheJudge’s business.”
As part of the launch we’ve also put together a short animation designed as an introductory guide for clients when considering their funding options. We hope it provides a novel and light hearted introduction for what can be for some a fairly dry subject.
Following the surge of applications for funding and insurance that took place in March 2013, application volumes have again started to rise, which demonstrates that regardless of the cost regime claimants continue to have appetite to explore options to reduce their cost liability when pursuing litigation and arbitration.
