The cost of litigation for small to medium sized companies and individuals is in many cases a significant barrier to commencing proceedings and/or succeeding against defendant companies, promoters, directors and advisors which have acted inappropriately and caused financial loss. Smaller companies (including those mid to small capitalised companies listed on the ASX and NZX) and smaller local authorities also struggle to fund such actions to protect the assets of their stakeholders.
The provision of litigation funding allows access to justice for plaintiffs who have suffered loss.
JustKapital is a leading litigation funder offering finance to corporate and individual plaintiffs with meritorious legal claims, but lacking the resources to pursue them. We finance business to business claims, breaches of fiduciary duties, breaches of continuous disclosure obligations, intellectual property rights, claims by liquidators, misleading & deceptive conduct and professional negligence.
JustKapital’s competitive advantage lies in its case review and selection process which takes a private equity approach to financing. We have identified complementary revenue streams to accelerate growth including full recourse financing of disbursements incurred in litigation. JustKapital is in the process of developing these revenue streams both organically and via selective acquisitions.
To further international expansion, a co-funding agreement is in place with Longford Capital, based in the United States. This gives JustKapital access to an additional pool of financing and a flow of US based investment opportunities.
JustKapital has a highly credentialed Advisory Committee, led by David Denton, QC. The Advisory Committee plays an important role in the business and operations of JustKapital, including providing guidance, advice and networking assistance to the Board and senior management as well as aiding in the identification, analysis and management of opportunities and risks, particularly in relation to litigation.
