Therium is a leading global provider of litigation, arbitration and specialty legal finance, active in England and Wales and internationally since 2009. Over that period, Therium has funded claims with a total value exceeding £34 billion including many of the largest and most
high profile funded cases. The firm has investment teams in the UK, USA, Australia, Spain, Germany, Italy and Oslo, supplementing its resources in its corporate headquarters in Jersey, Channel Islands.
Therium has established a track record of success in litigation finance in all forms including single case litigation and arbitration funding, financing law firms and investing in portfolios of litigation and arbitration claims. This track record enabled the firm to raise the then single largest investment into litigation finance of £200 million in 2015. Having deployed that investment fully by the end of 2017, in February 2018, Therium announced the first close of its next major fundraise of £200 million with a further round expected in 2019.
Therium has consistently been at the forefront of innovation in litigation finance, pioneering the combined use of insurance tools alongside funding vehicles, and introducing portfolio funding products into the UK. The firm’s ability to develop innovative funding arrangements and bespoke financial solutions for litigants and law firms complements its unmatched experience and rigorous approach to funding a wide range of commercial disputes throughout the world.
In Chambers and Partners’ inaugural litigation support directory 2018, Therium was ranked as a Tier 1 litigation funder, and Neil Purslow was named a leading individual in the litigation funding industry. Therium is a founder member of the Association of Litigation Funders of England and Wales.
In November 2018, Therium won the “Insolvency Litigation Funder of the Year Award” at the 2018 “Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency” awards in London. The award was made in recognition of Therium’s innovative approach to litigation funding, the geographical diversity of cases funded and client satisfaction. The Judges said: “In a strong field, judges were impressed by the significant scale and range of this global business. Therium set itself apart by a series of powerful and persuasive testimonials, demonstrating a commitment to their clients and the wider industry.”
