Our Stats

Litigation Process

Our technical analysts will perform a preliminary free evaluation to establish: (i) if the case is suitable for litigation, and (ii) the probability of recovering the estimated loss.


If the case is suitable, we will agree on a mandate for negotiation and litigation where our compensation will be success fee based.


We will perform an in-depth technical analysis on the specific documentation on which we will base the negotiation with the counterparty for a reimbursement of the losses.


If a settlement is not reached, we will file the case in front of the court in the relevant jurisdiction through our global network of highly experienced lawyers.


We file all letters of dispute in order to delay the statute of limitations.


We will file a formal document of dispute into the tribunal.


We will attempt to reach a settlement with the counterparty which usually resolves in approximately 1.5 years from the filing of the writ of summons.


The lawsuit will take an estimated time of 2.5-3 years to reach a final verdict.

Recovery Timeline


The EU legal frameworks for contractual and non-contractual circumstances recognize an investor’s ability to recover their losses. 

Approximately 70% of our cases settle within 18 months after the filing of the writ of summons. 

As a result of our fully contingent policy, we have cultivated a distinct and tuned capability to select “valuable cases” from the beginning of the process, and to predict which particular mandates may lead to a successful settlement or positive court judgment.


This selection is completed scientifically through our internal proprietary ‘score model’ which assigns a specific score to each of our proceedings, as a result of the documentation obtained by the clients and the background of previous decisions.


Because of this approach, we have consistently found ourselves able to select mandates with a high probability of success and profitability for our firm. Our method has allowed us to organize and manage over 2,000 proceedings recovering more than €285 million for our clients. We host a case success rate of approximately 92%, depending on the financial instrument.
