How cases arise will rarely determine whether or not we will support them.
Your expertise, and the type of investment you seek, are also important considerations for us. Some examples of our areas of specialism are set out below, and our information sheets highlight what we look for in each type of case. We fund all kinds of civil disputes except personal injury and divorce.
We operate in several jurisdictions, whether funding one case, a portfolio of cases, or a law firm. We support cases whether they are resolved through arbitration or litigation, and whether they are brought by one claimant or many.
Harbour funds parties from many industry sectors when they seek to resolve disputes through commercial arbitration or investor-state arbitration.

In an industry where cashflow can be tight, Harbour’s funds and experienced team help parties resolve expensive and technical disputes.
Employees often face an uphill struggle when they seek to challenge the actions of their employers. Learn how Harbour helps them level the playing field.

The business of financial institutions often gives rise to disputes over the mis-selling of products, or the mismanagement of funds. Harbour helps individuals and groups of claimants seek redress.

Where commercial transactions do not turn out as planned, litigation or arbitration may be a necessary tool. Harbour helps reduce the cost and risk of dispute resolution, freeing up your funds for investment in other areas of your business.
Group and class actions
Harbour is one of the world’s leading funders of group and class actions. We fund claims involving securities, shareholders, data breaches, consumer claims, mass torts, competition disputes, and more. We know where the risks arise, and what obstacles you are likely to face.
