The essentials up front

Those who wish to execute a lawsuit require a trusted lawyer. Claimants should speak directly to their lawyers about financing their litigation with FORIS.

2 Ex­ami­na­ti­on

Your lawyer reviews the prospects of your case

The prerequisite is a claim on payments or other assets that yield to EUR 100,000 or more. Your lawyer will examine the prospects of your claim’s success and will advise you to file a lawsuit if the odds appear to be promising.

3 Con­tact

Your lawyer contacts us

Should both client and lawyer agree to finance the litigation, the lawyer will contact us directly. They send us a claim application or a legal expertise including all necessary documents. Our checklist will ensure that we receive all the necessary information and documents. Thus, we can assess the case fully and quickly with a view to legal funding.

4 Fi­nan­cing

FORIS examines the financing options

Based on the documents provided we examine the financing possibilities and then we inform the lawyer and client, and discuss everything else in person.

5 Contract

A financing agreement is drawn up

Should our negotiations and discussions have a mutually positive result, a financing agreement is drawn up.

Your strong partner

In more than 15 years we have established an extensive expertise in litigation financing. Our team of experienced and specialised lawyers has already examined more than 10,000 cases with a claim value in excess of EUR seven billion.
As the largest independent litigation and legal financial services provider, FORIS is a strong partner. FORIS is a discrete and publicly traded company, independent from parent organisations in its decision making. A possible conflict of interest is therefore eliminated. With us, it does not matter who your opponent is.
