Based in the Gherkin (30 St Mary Axe) in the heart of the City of London, TheJudge is one of the most internationally recognised brands in the litigation funding market. What distinguishes TheJudge from individual litigation funding companies and ATE insurers is that we are an independent broker that accesses all the leading companies, including a number of whom that exclusively work through TheJudge.
We act as an agent for the client to source the most competitive offers of funding and insurance that we can from the international market.
Founded in 2000, we are also one of the longest established companies in this highly specialist industry
Our core litigation areas include:
- Commercial litigation and arbitration
- International arbitration, including bilateral investment treaty cases
- Construction and property litigation
- Competition /antitrust litigation
- Patent disputes and other intellectual property cases
- Mass tort and group litigation claims
Our team of brokers and directors include a number of the most experienced individuals in the industry. On any given day our team will be involved in arranging funding for cases requiring less than £500,000 of funding through to cases needing in excess of £20m of litigation finance and/or insurance.
In addition to arranging the funding/insurance for clients of leading law firms, we also regularly undertake ongoing training and development for leading commercial law firms. Our team are regular thought leaders in the legal press as well as acclaimed speakers at international legal conferences.
As well as our work in litigation, we also work with corporate M&A departments to arrange bespoke insurance solutions, ranging from representation and warranties insurance through to specialist litigation buy-out solutions.
Briefings from TheJudge
One of the first questions we are asked when discussing funding options is – how much will it cost? Well, it varies.
A recent report says that, by and large, funders are charging the same success fee, but that conclusion is squarely at odds with our experience
