Private Equity Veterans Launch Claimant-focused Law Firm

Ed Gehres, General Counsel of Miami-based investment platform 777 Partners, and Blake Trueblood, General Counsel of litigation funding companies JusticeFunds and Signal Funding, have launched Invenio LLP, a new Washington D.C.-based law firm that will focus on plaintiff and claimant-side litigation and litigation finance matters.

With decades of experience as complex case litigators, both partners spent the last five years working together on litigation finance and claims management matters that included international dispute resolution funding, law firm portfolio lending, pre- and post-settlement funding opportunities, case development and claims administration services in disaster recovery, mass tort, and complex commercial cases.

Invenio will initially focus on several mass tort cases and will add other claimant and class action mandates over time.  The firm is also building out technology driven client engagement capabilities in collaboration of experienced technologists. “We have spent years representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and understanding the business and finance of complex litigation. We are going to draw on all of that experience to pursue justice for our clients, while seeking to enhance client engagement throughout the lifecycle of a case,” said Ed Gehres.
