Augusta Ventures, the UK’s leading specialist financier for small to medium commercial claims, has announced a strategic partnership with the UK’s largest barrister direct access portal, myBarrister.
Augusta will offer on an exclusive basis its Trinity finance solution to all barristers who are members of myBarrister, providing them with the ability to offer finance to the client leads they receive from the myBarrister portal.
Louis Young, CEO of Augusta said: “The partnership with myBarrister provides us with a proven distribution channel for Augusta’s Trinity product to the premier Chambers in the UK and beyond . While in the main we rely on law firms to make their clients aware of our financing solution, there has been a steady increase in the number claimants instructing the Bar directly.
“In these circumstances, both the claimant and barrister will have the same need for equitable and flexible finance as those who choose to employ a solicitor to conduct their litigation. We believe that this is a significant step towards litigation finance becoming a mainstream option for litigants, and by looking to finance Direct Access-led work, we are further strengthening our portfolio of claims.”
