Provides litigation funding to finance a part, or all of the costs of litigation. The funding will cover the claimant's legal bills as they fall due. Astrea will not control the way litigation is conducted. If the claimant wins the case, Astrea will receive a share of the proceeds. If the claim does not succeed no funds have to be repaid to Astrea.
This is not a loan. Financing will give the client an opportunity to pursue claims with merit that, due to cash flow problems, might not otherwise be pursued. For corporate entities it is a mechanism to create value from litigation that has merit but which, whilst affordable, would not be a cash flow priority without an investment partner.
