Funding Your Case with Apex

We offer non-recourse litigation investments with quick turnarounds.


Litigation funding is where a third party provides the financial resources to enable litigation or arbitration cases to proceed. If the case is won, the funder receives an agreed share of the proceeds of the claim. If the case is unsuccessful, the funder loses its money and nothing is owed by the litigant.

Apex brings together experts from the legal and finance sectors to provide third party litigation funding to corporates, liquidators and individuals unable to pursue a claim due to the prohibitive cost of litigation.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. We are interested in funding cases of all sizes, although we have particular expertise in funding low to medium value cases (£100k to £5m in value).

Apex is able to assist corporates, individuals and liquidators of failed businesses.

In order to properly to assess the risk, we like to see and evaluate the following items before a decision can be reached:

  • The principal documents relied on in the case.
  • Any witness statements that have been prepared.
  • Any Court documents that have been filed.
  • A written legal opinion dealing positively with the merits.
  • Any pre-issue correspondence exchanged with the defendant.
  • A written estimate of the costs to be incurred in pursuing the claim.

However, we do recognise that, depending on the stage the preparations of the case have reached, some of these documents might not be immediately available.

The obvious advantage of litigation finance is to transform the bargaining power of financially challenged or impecunious claimants against better-resourced defendants. Apex helps provide those taking action against large companies with the resources needed to fight a protracted legal battle.

Claimants who have the ability to self-fund benefit from sharing the cost risk of the litigation and having an expert investor confirm that the case is financially viable.

Yes, Apex can provide funding for all or part of the costs of an action depending on the needs of the claimant.

As the funding is a non-recourse investment in the litigation, should the case lose then there is nothing to repay to Apex.

Apex requires repayment of all deployed capital and payment of the pre-agreed fee on each successful case. The payment of these amounts will be handled by your solicitors as instructed in our agreement.

Apex would expect to make an offer of funding, on acceptable cases, within 10 working days of the receipt of an application.

Apex does not have control over the case and does not have the right to make the claimant accept or decline a settlement offer. The claimant will retain ultimate control of their case.
