Augusta Ventures – the UK’s leading litigation financier for the SME market – has this week launched its blog: Diary of a Litigation Funder – a sideways look at the world of litigation finance.
Weekly posts from the Augusta team will provide a fresh take on the funding market, you can view the blog here: http://diaryofalitigationfunder.tumblr.com/ and keep up to date with new posts by following the blog on Tumblr.
Managing director Louis Young says: “Financing for litigation is no longer a last resort option for many lawyers, nor is it seen as something that is only used by mid-bracket firms to prop up their workbook. Over the past 18 months financing demand among claimants has increased dramatically and there is a growing realisation among solicitors that those who are familiar with the ins and outs of financing will be much better positioned to secure appointments to run a matter. This blog is our way of providing firms with an insight into how a financier thinks – as by knowing what the other side is thinking you have a much better chance of getting what you want.”
Augusta is well on its way to achieving a half century of claims financed since it started operations in 2014. While other funders focus on a handful of multi-million pound investments in big cases, Augusta invests between £10,000 and £600,000 in a broad range of commercial litigation matters, making them the first choice for may law firms and claimants.
