Litigation Appeal & Enforcement Funding
A successful court judgment or award is often not the end of the litigation process: rather, it can be a staging post along the way to successful recovery. With annulment or other types of appeal process common, contentious and expensive enforcement proceedings are often required.
Woodsford offers finance solutions for these late stages of the litigation process. We can provide the funding for litigants who have reached a successful judgment or award but who require additional support to get through the annulment and/or enforcement stages to ultimate recovery.
For example, for a claim that is post-trial but pre-award, we can deliver tranche funding, where finance is provided in stages following a successful judgment or award. This type of funding provides a claimant with the certainty of access to an immediate cash facility upon a successful judgment or award, while taking on some of the risk of potential annulment and/or enforcement proceedings.
