Testimonials

"He is one of the more sophisticated, thoughtful and innovative people in the space. He understands the commercial drivers of a law firm and knows how to fund cases and portfolios. On that front he is widely regarded as one of the leaders in the field. A lot of funders really don't understand that, compared to Neil and Therium."

The way they have dealt with us has been first rate."
