Our story

For most people it is difficult, if not impossible, to independently start a lawsuit. The costs are enormous, it is for almost everyone totally unknown territory and it is a particularly stressful adventure. So we thought: if there are multiple people with the same legal problem, collaboration is the solution. But how do you find fellow claimants and how do you organize that? If in a particular case a collective has already been formed, it is often lacking supervision and/or professionalism. The counterparty, however, is often wealthy, experienced and powerful. Thus it is an unequal struggle.

We believe that in this age of technological progress, this inequality is unnecessary. That is why we have designed a high-quality online platform that offers claimants in a claim an online base and structure to start a court case together. With our over 35 years of experience in the legal profession and over 20 years of experience with crowd building and technology, we help (co-)claimants, specialist lawyers and potential funders find each other. And we support them until the end of the procedure. A Supervisory Committee ensures that all agreements are complied with. By forging a powerful collective and providing professional support, ClaimShare contributes to the creation of more equal opportunities, which in the legal field is also referred to as 'equality of arms'. This is done for the sole purpose of achieving a just solution for everyone.
