We provide our bespoke services to a range of clients including corporate clients and law firms..
Ramco has been a pioneer and market leader in developing litigation funding in Spain. Litigation funding can meet some or all of the costs of pursuing the claim in return for a share of the proceeds payable only if the claim is successful.
Ramco has extensive experience on international arbitration and can offer structures specifically tailored to the particular issues that arise in those cases.
Ramco has a long track record with regard to funding for group litigation and class actions across a wide variety of jurisdictions for clients who would otherwise be unable to seek redress.
Monetisation pending claims helps to remove downside risk while monetisation of judgments and awards facilitates the acceleration of enforcement through advance payments to monetise the outcome before its final conclusion.
We work with law firms to monetise areas of their practice, from financing individual cases, class actions or portfolio cases.
Monetisation portfolios provides substantial upfront capital by monetising the outcome of the case prior to its completion, allowing the company to maximise the value and profitability of its litigation assets.

A claim with reasonable prospects of success is a business asset. While a company may not be able to reflect the prospective value of a claim in its financial statements, it has a value which access to litigation funding may help to unlock.
While initially third party funding was generally confined to claimants with limited resources, in recent years, even large companies with more than adequate cash resources have been using this funding mechanism on a recurring basis, with the objective of maximising the value and profitability of their litigation assets.
Third-party funding can be used at any stage of the judicial or arbitration proceedings and even when the claimant has already exhausted its own resources in the early stages of the proceedings.
Leading law firms face increasing competition in maintaining client relationships. Major law firms are looking for ways to take on more cases and to secure more revenue through alternative fee structures.
Litigation funding provides law firms with the resources to generate new cases and respond to the needs of their clients. Through litigation funding, the claimant can maintain the hourly rate relationship with its lawyers of choice, knowing that the necessary resources will be allocated to the case and the best experts engaged to make the case a success.
Litigation finance is an alternative asset class, with the clear potential to deliver substantial uncorrelated returns.
Ramco has been honored to be appointed to author the Spain Chapter of the 6th Edition of “The Third-Party Funding Law Reviews”, edited by “The Law Reviews”.
Cristina Soler, CEO of Ramco, and Carlos Llorente, Of Counsel, have authored the Spain chapter and have shared their views on the litigation and arbitration finance industry in Spain.Find out more
Frequently asked questions
Litigation funding (also known in the UK as Third Party Funding) is a form of litigation financing which involves the funder paying some or all of a party’s legal costs of pursuing a claim in return for a share of the proceeds on success.
No. The litigation funder only gets paid if your case is successful and damages have been obtained. Litigation funding is non-recourse if the case fails.
No. There is no cost to clients.
As long as these costs are included in the agreed financing budget, historical costs can be financed.
Insurance (ATE insurance) can be taken out to cover the risk of any adverse costs award and to ensure that the claimant has this risk covered.
We invite clients to contact RAMCO by email or telephone and make an enquiry under a confidentiality agreement. We usually request a summary of the case from the lawyers, including details of the claim, the amount of the claim and the budget for pursuing the claim, together with details of the defendants.
Privilege protects communications between the parties and the lawyers. We therefore ask all claimants to sign our NDA as soon as they start sharing information with us.
