Vannin Capital is named as a litigation funder supporting public interest litigation including human rights, discrimination and police accountability cases, run by Public Interest Advocacy Centre Ltd. (PIAC) in Australia.

The Adverse Costs Order Guarantee Fund was established by PIAC last year to ensure public interest cases can go ahead in circumstances where the risk of an adverse costs order would discourage clients from proceeding with their case.

Under the scheme, clients will be indemnified so that they can go ahead with their cases without having to risk their assets or income.

‘We are very grateful to all of our partners for committing resources to the fund,’ said PIAC CEO, Jonathon Hunyor.

‘It’s great to see the development of a culture of support for social justice among litigation funders, and we congratulate our project partners on leading the way.’
