Excerpt about Legis Founder, Tim Scrantom
In the UK, litigation finance took a non-conventional path. First to ‘go public’ was Juridica through a closed-end fund structure. In speaking with Tim Scrantom, a founder of Juridica and a pioneer in the litigation finance industry, the public vehicle structure was a condition of raising capital from wealth management firms, specifically Neil Woodsford’s Invesco Perpetual fund which could not invest in private structures at the time, but loved the idea behind the litigation finance industry. With Neil, who was described as the ‘Warren Buffet of the UK’ at the time, the rest of the market followed to the point where Juridica was able to raise a significant amount of capital in a very short period of time, all with the condition that the vehicle be publicly listed to ensure investor liquidity.
