New Litigation Finance Agreement


LCM to fund claim alleging that Amazon engaged in anticompetitive conduct and abused its dominant position in the UK market


Litigation Capital Management Limited (AIM:LIT), an alternative asset manager specialising in dispute financing solutions internationally, announces it has entered into a new litigation finance agreement with Julie Hunter, a consumer rights advocate and proposed class representative, in an application to commence a collective action soon to be launched in the Competition Appeal Tribunal against Amazon.


The agreement to provide a litigation finance facility is to fund a claim alleging Inc. and other entities in the Amazon Group engaged in anticompetitive conduct and  abused its dominant position in the market for the provision of online marketplace services in the UK, in breach of section 18 of the Competition Act 1998 and/or Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.  


LCM remains focused on sustainable long-term growth through our strategic relationships and the development of a high-quality portfolio of investments.

Patrick Moloney, CEO of LCM, commented: "We are pleased to enter into this new litigation finance agreement, which represents another important step as we grow our position as a leader in disputes funding in the UK market. 


"In line with the increasing recognition of opportunities presented by litigation funding to consumers and the communities in which we operate, we are seeing an increasing number of competition-based claims in the UK."
