Non-recourse, no risks.
Reduce the risk of uncertain patent litigation. In the existence of a patent dispute, there are several phases where a case may be defeated or reduced. By securing non-recourse funding from us, you will defend against some of these risks.
Improve access to justice.
For aggrieved patent holders, litigation financing may improve access to justice. A plaintiff may seek a more fair settlement with the financial backing and influence of a litigation funder, rather than being compelled to accept insufficient compensation because of restricted funds.
Take on better cases.
For law firms, you could lower the cost of contingency plans and free up resources to take on new cases. Through sharing the costs and risks with a funder, law firms will take on additional, high-value patent cases. They may also use funds to cover an existing portfolio of patent lawsuits or new claims.

What are patent claims?
A patent is a right given to an inventor that allows them, for a limited time, to prohibit others from making, selling, or using their invention. But they also have to turn to the courts in order for a patent holder to secure fair and proper value for their property rights. Patent holders will face big, well-capitalized defendants here who have limitless resources to battle claims for litigation. Not only would these defendants aggressively contest in court the charges of infringement and the validity of the patent, but they and other third parties can also bring numerous challenges to the validity of the patent before the Patent and Trademark Office of the United States of America.
These variables mean that patent litigation is often riskier and more costly than other litigation forms. This makes patent litigation particularly well-suited to third-party support, which provides a claimant with the tools required to pursue a case to its conclusion while mitigating some of the risk along the way.
How much do patent litigation cost?
Patent cases are costly. IP is a rapidly shifting area, often spanning several jurisdictions and countries, where newly fought cases can set precedents that enable lawyers to change gears and develop new attack plans, but all come with costs. Fees in this range make cases worth managing, but many lawyers and firms would need an inflow of capital to help continue business as normal.
How does patent litigation funding help?
Litigation funding is a powerful weapon in the battle, regardless of what form of patent infringement a lawyer or corporation is battling or whether its client is fighting it out in a courtroom or a deposition. Funding for patent litigation offers a proven way for businesses to obtain an advance on projected payments resulting from their lawsuit. Funds may be used to cover different case-fighting expenses or to help the company's operating costs, thus ensuring sustained growth and performance.
