Civil and commercial law
File a suit in any field without financial risk
In addition to the areas of the law listed on our website, we also provide funding for suitable claims under general civil and commercial law.
Whether it be incorrect or erroneous advice in the context of brokering capital investments, the conclusion of a sale and purchase agreement, a commercial agent’s claim to compensation or the safeguarding of claims under insurance policies – as long as the action meets the basic requirements for litigation funding, we would be happy to learn more about it. In a best-case scenario, we will offer to sign an agreement as to litigation funding after having reviewed the matter.
Claims from the following areas of the law, in particular, are well suited for litigation funding:
In order to provide for old age, two husband-and-wife entrepreneurs decide to invest in closed real-estate and shipping funds because of the consultation provided in this matter by their principal bank. The funds, however, turn out to crash and burn, resulting in significant gaps in the couple’s provision for old age. The couple heared from their lawyer that bank was receiving significant kickbacks from the respective investment funds for selling these funds. ROLAND ProzessFinanz assumes the costs of reclaiming the capital contribution before a court; as a result, ROLAND secures the couple’s income during retirement.
In Hungary, a non-domestic corporation and a German enterprise conclude an agreement as to a joint venture. After just one year has passed, the joint venture fails due to irreconcilable differences of opinion on strategy. The German enterprise files suit and asserts its claim to compensation of damages against the partner in the joint venture. Because of the million-euro amount that is being claimed as compensation of damages, ROLAND ProzessFinanz provides funding for the German client’s litigation; together with the lawyers retained by the client, ROLAND effects a comprehensive settlement that also encompasses several parallel proceedings pending abroad.
A well-known automotive brand terminates the business relationship with one of its commercial agents, properly observing the contractually-agreed notice period. Said agent contacts a lawyer since the compensation determined by the manufacturer seems to him to be too low. The lawyer determines that the agent is entitled to significantly higher compensation and advises the agent to file suit. ROLAND ProzessFinanz provides the funding for the action, meaning the commercial agent can pursue this matter in court without incurring any financial risk.
Photographer M. takes several pictures on behalf of an enterprise; she agrees to the enterprise being entitled to use the photographs. After a few years have passed, Ms. M. realizes that the enterprise uses the photographs to a much broader extent than has been contractually agreed. After negotiations for a retroactive licensing of the photographs prove unsuccessful, ROLAND ProzessFinanz provides funding for the complaint brought by Ms. M. against the enterprise for infringing her copyright.
A plastics-processing operation was commissioned to manufacture plastic covers for another enterprise. The framework agreement concluded in this context provided for a contractual term of 24 months and for the quantities to be purchased. In both years, however, the opposite side failed to purchase the quantities that had been agreed. In the context of the proceedings for which ROLAND ProzessFinanz provides funding, compensation of damages was claimed for failure to fulfill contractual obligations. The proceedings were brought to a close by a settlement pursuant to which the opposite side was to pay a significant amount of money.
At a construction site, a mason falls from the building shell; he is severely and permanently injured. His injury means that, from that point in time, he can no longer work; consequently, he requests that his disability pension be paid to him. His insurance company, however, refuses payment, citing as its reason that the mason has not reached the degree of occupational disability that would make him eligible for his disability pension. In the context of providing funding for the complaint proceedings, ROLAND ProzessFinanz also pays for the medical expert opinions required to determine the degree of occupational disability; together with the lawyer retained for the mandate, ROLAND effects payment of a monthly disability pension for the client.
