About us

Manolete Partners Plc is the leading insolvency litigation financing company in the UK and was founded in 2009 by its CEO, Steven Cooklin.

As at 30 September 2019, Manolete had invested in 344 UK insolvency litigation cases and completed 211 of them. Manolete works alongside Insolvency Practitioners (IPs) from all of the “Big Four” to smaller regional firms. Manolete has worked with over 100 IP firms and their chosen legal advisers, often on multiple cases.

Manolete is different from other litigation funders because cases are completed very quickly – the average duration is less than 12 months. The large majority are settled long before trial - minimising costs and optimising returns.

Legal changes (the Jackson Reforms and the Small Business Enterprise and Employment Act) have freed up the insolvency sector, making Manolete's bespoke financing solutions particularly well suited to the challenges of insolvency litigation.

The Company is three-time winner of ‘Insolvency Litigation Funder of the Year’ at the Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency Industry Awards. Manolete also won ‘Growth Company of the Year’ at the 2019 Shares Awards.

Manolete was ranked in the Financial Times’ Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies in 2018 and once again in 2019.

Manolete was listed on AIM on 14 December 2018.
