AEQUIFIN – The Innovative Marketplace for Litigation Funding
The special feature is the AEQUIFIN Quota Balancing, which is optionally available to platform users. This bidding process enables the financing of a case with any number of sponsors. The AEQUIFIN Quota Balancing establishes a market price (the AEQUIFIN Quota) that ist co-determined by all participants and specifies a uniform participation of the sponsors in the financial success of the case.
Therefore litigants mandate their lawyer or find specialised lawyers via the platform.
If necessary, they find specialised lawyers via the platform.
The AEQUIFIN advisory board
Due to the legal structure of AEQUIFIN as a “Kommanditgesellschaft auf Aktien” (KGaA) – a partnership limited by shares – shareholders can barely exert influence on the management of the AEQUIFIN platform cases. The AEQUIFIN Advisory Board replaces the influence of shareholders and exercises additional control.
Data and privacy protection
Personal data is treated according to the rules of the press law and anonymised at the request of the user. The transfer of names is controlled by the lawyer of the litigants on a case-by-case basis. In a protected data room, sponsors have access to important documents. The litigant’s lawyer can decide when a confidentiality agreement is necessary.
Equal opportunity and fairness
Equal opportunity and fairness in access to justice are important. The AEQUIFIN platform's Terms and Conditions are designed to ensure financial equal opportunity and fairness in the enforcement of the law.
The rule of law and fundamental rights are of great importance for a functioning society. A fair balance of interests, sustainable economic activity and the preservation of natural living conditions should be supported.
With this in mind, the AEQUIFIN Advisory Board monitors the approval of cases on the AEQUIFIN platform and reserves the right not to approve cases that contradict this.
