An Overview of Quanta Capital

Quanta Capital has been established to combine Litigation and Dispute Finance alongside an innovative LegalTech ethos, to create a new modern approach to Litigation funding.

Incorporated by a senior board at the top of their respective fields, Quanta’s innovative approach to this sector has been dubbed a ‘breath of fresh air’ where funding solutions are concerned.

Taking the base methodology of traditional Litigation and Dispute Finance, while removing the commonly associated risks.

 

Quanta Capital Group incorporates two distinct divisions which both provide for a dedicated and specialist focus to their respective markets.

Innovative LegalTech Ethos

Quanta Capital ‘Finance Advance Packages’ provide exactly that, seeing a Litigation or Dispute case as the asset and advancing capital based on the prospect of success and Quantum

Most Law Firms and Lawyers thrive on practicing Law, not the business of law. The Quanta Capital approach allows Firms to focus on what they are good at and allow Quanta to provide a stress free commercial solution.

When a client approaches a Law Firm without the capibility of self funding and does not like the pay by the hour approach, deferring the cost of running the case, the net impact on the Law Firm is huge. The Firm’s issue with absorbing that risk is where Quanta Capital come in.

Traditional Litigation Funding?

In its simplest form, litigation funding involves a specialist funder financing some or all of (typically) a claimant’s legal fees incurred in a dispute, in exchange for a share of the damages (Damages Based Agreement or DBA). If the case is successful, the funder will recover their investment plus a success fee. If the case is unsuccessful, the funder could lose its investment. Success fees are often expressed as a multiple of the investment, a percentage of damages, or the greater of the two.

The Quanta Capital approach uses the traditional financing, delivered in a modern and innovative way. The necessary finance is provided to either the Law Firm or Client depending on the model, and a fixed monthly interest is charged for the rolling amount borrowed. The benefit of the Quanta approach is clarity at the outset of what the finance will cost, without having to take a significantly disproportionate or ‘Champertous’ interest in the running and subsequent outcome of the case.

Historically, due to all of the above reasons, most organisations within the litigation finance market are global entities that will ‘cherry pick’ the extremely large Commercial Litigation cases where millions of pounds are ‘loaned’ on an individual case. Quanta will evaluate all cases on its respective merits irrespective of the estimated Quantum

Off Balance Sheet Funding

Quanta Capital have entered the world of Litigation Funding with a range of “Off Balance Sheet” Advanced Lending products. Their market leading, innovative, solutions allow for greater assistance with less resistance lending.

Quanta blend their robust structure and key partners with their state-of-the-art LegalTech ethos enabling a quick, real-world approach across the Organisation.

The Quanta model allows for a wider catchment of cases, resulting in more cases being funded and much less exposure per individual case than previously seen in the UK Litigation funding arena.

The Quanta Model?

The Quanta model works with the perfect combination of Funder, Insurance, Approved Vetting Agent (AVA) and Law Firm.

Vetting the likely success and Quantum of a case at the outset minimises all parties risk and enables the ability to ascertain a likely percentage of success. Once approved, utilising the perfect mix of insurance (where required), and gaining Law Firm buy-in by running the case on a CFA, will give Quanta the comfort to deploy an “Off Balance Sheet” advance to the firm, and mitigate the financial risks for both the client and the Law Firm.

When the case is successful, an interest rate which is accrued on a monthly basis and deferred to the end of the case is to be recovered by Quanta Capital. If in the unlikely event the Litigation case was to fail, the mix of insurance will take the responsibility to repay away from the client and the Law firm in question. For Matrimonial cases, recovery of the advance is typically agreed by the courts, however if this isn’t the case the Client is still required to settle their obligations under the terms of the subscribed CCA.
