What we do

Having the skill set of lawyers and finance experts review a claim make for the ability to get to the heart of a case quickly. Therium AHV comprises leading lawyers, barristers and finance experts. The lawyers are routinely involved in all aspects of litigation and arbitration. The finance experts are able to quickly understand both the simplest and most complex transactions in the financial services sector.

Each case is unique and is carefully considered. We do not compartmentalise claims by sector or industry but are driven by the legal and financial arguments that underpin cases.

Therium AHV embraces a pragmatic and open relationship. We endeavour to build long lasting, mutually beneficial relationships in all the cases we fund.

We appreciate that the financial markets are broad. As such we are happy to discuss specific cases on a confidential basis. We have an international reach and regularly consider cases involved in arbitral proceedings. Therium AHV can provide funding for both domestic and international arbitration.

How it works

Litigation funding is not a loan; it is an investment by Therium AHV. Should the claim not be successful there is nothing for the Claimant to repay. From the funder’s perspective if the claim fails, the funder receives nothing but may face liability for the other side’s costs. Litigation funding involves paying the legal bills and other costs of a claimant in exchange for an agreed share of the damages on success.

What this means for claimants:

  • Securing litigation funding sends a powerful message to a defendant that an opponent’s increasing cost bill will not scare the claimant into discontinuing their claim.
  • Enables claimants with limited means to pursue claims they could not ordinarily pursue.
  • Allows claimants to limit their litigation cost exposure, thus there is no downside to pursuing funded claims especially when it removes litigation as an accounting liability.
  • Frees available capital to be directed to other business needs.
  • Litigation-related insurance such as ATE may be obtained to reduce risk of adverse costs.

What this means for law firms:

  • Conditional fee agreements and damage based agreements are not necessarily a pre-requisite for Therium AHV to fund a case.
  • Therium AHV would consider funding the costs incurred for developing a case to a position that it can be funded.
  • Having a restrictive legal budget will no longer limit the development of a case.

What this means for insolvency practitioners:

  • Therium AHV can take an assignment of the claim from insolvency practitioners in order to transfer the financial risk and unlock the full potential of the case.
  • Dissolved companies with claims can be restored to the register making funding more accessible.
