Alternative Litigation Finance

Our experience in claim investing is unparalleled. In fact we created the term “ALF”, which is now adopted by The American Bar Association and leading global academics. We also developed the original underwriting standards and systems for the Alternative Litigation Finance markets. Today we are widely acknowledged as leading innovators in this field and can help you grow your own portfolios of commercial claim investments . . .

Expert Advisory Services

We provide expert structuring and investment advice for individual claim opportunities or firm-wide portfolio management needs. We’ll help you avoid the myriad ethical and other complicated issues that can arise when you’re arranging finance for your clients. Ultimately, we bring a new level of choice and transparency that allows law firms and their clients to choose the best risk-mitigation structure . . .
