Capital Funding against African state

Working with a leading public international law firm in London, Omni Bridgeway successfully funded confidential international arbitration proceedings brought by a corporate SME against an African state for breach of contract relating to an energy project. The proceedings resulted in a significant award of damages. As well as assisting the corporate client to pursue its arbitration claim, Omni Bridgeway also entered into an innovative working capital funding facility, secured by the proceeds of the arbitration, which has enabled the client to grow its business by pursuing additional energy projects in Africa.  

The project shows how dispute finance is evolving to enable corporates to meet their core business needs, using the previously hidden value of litigation assets as collateral.
