Omni Bridgeway and ROLAND ProzessFinanz form international alliance
The merger of Dutch litigation funder Omni Bridgeway and Cologne-based ROLAND ProzessFinanz AG in mid-2017 created continental Europe’s leading litigation funder, able to support its customers by putting to use its knowledge and experience in the relevant European legal systems and in all arbitration proceedings. It has been the first merger of two litigation funders in Europe, as well as the first cross-border acquisition in this industry anywhere.
ROLAND ProzessFinanz AG will continue to operate as an independent enterprise and to do business under its own name in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland; Dr. Arndt Eversberg, one of the most experienced litigation funders in Europe, will continue to be at the helm: “Because of Omni Bridgeway, we are now able to operate much more actively and with sufficient resources – not only when it comes to antitrust actions and collective actions brought by consumers.”
Omni Bridgeway has been active in the market since 1986 and is specialized in international arbitration as well as enforcing awards, on a global basis, against enterprises, countries, and public institutions. Based in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Omni Bridgeway maintains offices in London, Geneva, Singapore, and Guernsey, as well as a worldwide network of partners. As a general rule, Omni Bridgeway funds individual actions and disputes as well as collective actions with amounts in dispute of at least EUR 10 million.
