Advisory & Intermediary Services
No financial intermediary or independent adviser shares Legis’ deep experience in alternative litigation finance and commercial claim investment risk-mitigation options. We have over 70 years’ combined experience in the industry. Over these many years, Legis team members have been hired by scores of investors, including some of the world’s largest asset managers and financial intermediaries, to explore or arrange investments in the ALF space. We have also advised law firms around the globe on underwriting systems for contingent fee investments and have represented leading law firms in numerous transactions, including providing claim valuations for a variety of purposes.
Advice to law firms in the ALF sector can be complex. It often involves expertise in litigation doctrines like work product and privilege; professional ethics rules; and finance and litigation strategy. Legis’ team has the tools and resources to expertly help our clients navigate these various disciplines.
Where appropriate, Legis can provide chief investment officer (CIO) functions to law firms to assist in managing and growing their commercial litigation investment portfolios. As an “outsourced CIO”, we can assist the firm in managing the cash flows and liquidity of their risk-based portfolio through monetizing portions of the portfolio to meet changing firms’ needs.
