About us

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

Manolete has invested in over 240 UK insolvency litigation cases and has completed over 170 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.

Recent 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.

Manolete was ranked in the Financial Times’ Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2018. The Company has been shortlisted for ‘Insolvency Litigation Funder of the Year’ at the Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency Industry Awards in each of the last three years and was the winner on two occasions.

Manolete was listed on AIM on 14 December 2018.
