Chambers Review of Therium from Chambers and Partners 2020 Litigation Support guide:


Therium Capital Management is one of the most innovative and creative funders in the market. The firm brings a global and commercial perspective to cases.
“the quality of the people are outstanding, first rate” and that they are “very knowledgeable and truly understand the cases.”


“Probably my favourite funder to work with, I highly recommend them. They strike an excellent balance in terms of relationships.”


“I really regard Therium as one of the pre-eminent funders in this market.”


Therium Capital Management is an innovative and creative funder considered to be “at the forefront of the funding market in the UK.” Therium raised USD430 million in its latest fund-raising round, adding to its already formidable financial weight. The seasoned fund is praised for having great expertise in crafting innovative pricing solutions and commercial structures to fit challenging and pioneering cases.


“They were very easy to work with after the agreement, involved when we asked for it, and that’s it. From my perspective, they were perfect – there if we wanted them but no more.”


“They are far and away the most adept professionals to work with. They are funding a huge case of ours at the moment. The best thing is that they have a bespoke approach to the case, so that you feel like you are working collaboratively. They have a very clear and incisive perspective on how cases develop.”


The firm wins great praise for its out-of-the-box solutions and its clear and transparent methods. Therium’s efficient underwriting processes are especially singled out.


“Their experience, judgement and perspective during turbulent times in the litigation has been invaluable, and their integrity has been beyond reproach. We interviewed all the major litigation finance firms, as well as a number of newer and lesser-known firms – Therium stuck out above the rest and have delivered on everything they promised.”


“Right at the very top of funders I have dealt with. Efficient with their underwriting, their process is such that once you are comfortable with funding a matter, they move it quickly through their investment committee. My go-to funder.”
