LexShares has released a first-of-its-kind report, The Litigation Funding Barometer – A Data-Driven Analysis of What Litigation Funders Want, which analyzes more than 31,000 lawsuits filed in US federal and state jurisdictions to reveal which characteristics separate funding-worthy cases from the rest of the pack, ultimately finding that just 12% of federal cases and fewer than 10% of state cases met the threshold for funding consideration in 2021.
Cayse Llorens, Jay Greenberg and Max Volsky of Lexshares reflect on recent industry developments, including the news that industry veterans Adam Gerchen and Ashley Keller have returned to the market with a $750 million fund targeting secondary market investments and predict that we will see additional secondary funds coming to the market in the near future.
US-based LexShares, a leading technology platform for litigation finance, announced the oversubscribed closing of LexShares Marketplace Fund II (LMFII), a $100 million fund dedicated to investments in commercial legal claims. LexShares’ deployment of the fund will be overseen by the new chief executive officer, Cayse Llorens, who joined the firm’s senior leadership team in 2021. Investment in the fund was led by Titan Advisors. LexShares also announced the appointment of Cayse Llorens, an accomplished venture capital investor and data scientist, as CEO.
