Fulbrook Capital Management is among the newest entrants to the Dispute Finance industry. It is dedicated to the creation and management of investments in high stakes, meritorious corporate litigation and arbitration claims. It is working within that portion of the industry which provides expert advice to claimants, and investors, and sometimes defendants, and if needed also links worthy individual or portfolios of claims with capital.
It has recently entered and is seeking to help create an unusual specific niche in the industry: assisting to settle claims— whether or not they are financeable— and in doing so representing claimants, investors, defendants, or courts, arbitrators, and mediators. Fulbrook’s portfolio includes cases having varying degrees of risk, returns, anticipated times to recovery and forms of investment. It is particularly focused on complex commercial claims in areas including: international disputes, in arbitration and litigation and enforcement of judgments; financial distress and insolvency; patents and other IP; serious breach of contract, fraud, including securities fraud; certain claims involving financial service entities and practices; and selected compelling commercial claims in specialty areas like whistle blower, and insurance and reinsurance.
It works globally. It thus is involved with disputes in specific jurisdiction. the U.S. and Canada, the U.K and Europe, the middle east and far east. Its investment criteria looks for claims needing between $1,000,000 and $10,000,000 for financing, with expected recoveries typically in excess of $50,000,000 to $100,000,000 (with a number in the billions). The average projected timeline between investment and recovery of about two to three years (with heavy front-loading of cases expected to have a year or less lifespan). Fulbrook has a wide range of possible cost saving processes, structures, and experts, coupled with a similar number of pricing structures.
Fulbrook’s principals and key advisors are experienced in litigation finance and litigation risk assessment. They are a formidable team and supporting network of institutional and individual specialists. They work as an integrated team.
