Benefits

We only work with an exclusive panel of litigating law firms that adhere to our strict code of conduct. These members have the right to display our members logo.

We deliver a number of benefits to litigating solicitors and third party product providers that litigating solicitors may use, including;

COMPLIANCE

The SRA’s Code of Conduct states that a solicitor has an obligation to advise their client on the various options that are available to pay for the costs associated with any type of litigation (SRA Code of Conduct IB(1.16)).

After the DIP has been completed CLAS will automatically produce a 14-page bespoke editable report to help the solicitor satisfy their regulatory duties;

• Costs explanations
• Defendant asset & liability analysis
• AI predictability on claim(s) and counsel merits
• Quantum report

When all the compliance tools are used together the solicitor can produce a comprehensive report, for their client, that demonstrates that the solicitor has completed a full analysis of the merits of the claim(s) at the beginning of the litigation. The completed report will undoubtably help the solicitor win new business.

DECISION IN PRINCIPLE (DIP)

Solicitors can access the unique DIP algorithm to obtain a funding and/or ATE decision within 5 minutes from the UK’s largest panel of funders and ATE providers. The data entered is analysed by the algorithm to see which funder and/or insurer will fund and/or insure the case. This is the only portal in the UK that will supply a decision from a number of funders and/or ATE insurers.

ELECTRONIC FILE

If the solicitor decides to progress with litigation funding and/or ATE insurance then the transition from DIP to a full electronic file is seamless.

Once the solicitor and their client have decided which litigation funder and/or ATE provider they would like to progress with the algorithm, and our expert staff, will help them to prepare the file with the correct information and evidence to be reviewed.

Once the file is completed then the litigation funder and/or ATE provider will log in to CLAS and deal with the solicitor directly.

If required the solicitor can ask for Counsel, Costs Lawyers and other third-party providers to have confidential and controlled access to the file satisfying GDPR responsibilities.
