Pressure Mounts for Ireland to Embrace Litigation Funding

25th February 2020

Matthew Denney writes for CDR News about a recent report launched by Ireland’s Chief Justice that makes a case for collective redress and litigation funding in the Republic of Ireland.


There is nothing to suggest that Ireland would not be an attractive market for funding.

There will be the usual diversity of cases that a funder would look at and take individual investment decisions. However, from a sophisticated financing point of view, one of the main attractions of the Irish market is the number of corporates who are domiciled in the country who would benefit from being able to run more litigation than they would otherwise be able to and the positive balance sheet impacts of using portfolio funding and other external capital solutions.
