Intellectual Property & Patent Litigation Financing

Stay at the leading edge of innovation and competition by gaining access to the resources like patent litigation finance and legal advice to mount a successful case against parties infringing on your patents, trade secrets, copyrights and trademarks.

Omni Bridgeway’s intellectual property financing is designed to help you cover the significant expenses associated with IP cases, which typically involve law firms, multiple defendants, substantial discovery and expert expenses, parallel proceedings, complex appeals and years of patent litigation. It can be used to pay legal finance that would otherwise deplete capital intended for research, development and other types of company purposes. 

Let us empower you to drive advancement while protecting the intellectual property that fuels your success.
