Please note, this is not exhaustive nor meant as tick list detailing what you must provide. Some documents may be irrelevant or unavailable at this time
If the supporting documents combined are in excess of 100 pages, please only enclose the documents you think are pertinent to the legal case and provide a list of all documents available. This will ensure your application is dealt with by the insurers and funders in the shortest possible time.

- A brief overview of the case (background details and facts).
- A chronology of events.
- The causes of action.
- Why your legal team believe your case has merit.
- The defendant’s position (if the case is at an early stage and the defendant’s position is not known, we ask that your legal team try to pre-empt the potential defence).
- What steps to date, if any, have been taken to ascertain the defendant’s financial standing.
*provided no material changes have been made to the case since the document was produced.
