ClaimTrading Ltd was founded in 2011 with a view to helping claimholders, award creditors and their legal counsel benefit from the expanding opportunities in the litigation finance and claims monetization market.
The senior management team of ClaimTrading is led by managing directors Maddi Azpiroz and John Mooren in London. From Dubai, Dolores de Elizalde, supports the team as senior legal counsel.
ClaimTrading is the leading international broker of litigation and arbitration finance. We are independent and always act for the claimholder or award creditor. Over the past five years, we have worked with claimants large and small, listed at an exchange or insolvent, in many industries, including mining, energy and financial services.
We work with a diverse set of investors, who all focus on non-recourse investment opportunities in contentious legal matters worldwide.
Litigation finance covers all transactions where the value of a legal claim, judgment or award is used to obtain financing.
It helps claimants (companies, institutions or individuals) to unlock the often-substantial value buried in unresolved litigation.
