New litigation funder launches in Germany
Dr. Volker Knoop, formerly of FORIS AG, has launched CALVOR GmbH, a new litigation funding company in Germany. The new financier will initially focus on commercial and corporate law, D&O liability law and insolvency law. In the future, it may fund cases around antitrust, patent or tax law. CALVOR will operate independently in Germany, but belongs to the British litigation financier Asertis, from which its financing comes from.
