Mark Dawkins has joined Manchester-based specialist small case litigation funder Thaxted Capital as a partner. Mark was previously the head of Akin Gump’s London Disputes Group. Thaxted was launched earlier this month by Jack Bradley-Seddon with a £25million initial investment from private equity institutional investor Sandton Capital Partners.
Asset Reality, Grant Thornton UK LLP, Outer Temple Chambers, Rahman Ravelli and Sandton Capital are collaborating to help victims of crypto-related fraud overcome access to justice hurdles. While crypto-related fraud reached an all-time high in 2021, with illicit addresses receiving US$14bn over the course of the year, up 79% on the previous year, matters brought before courts remain comparatively low, in large part due to a lack of funding options for otherwise meritorious lower-value claims. Under the new collaboration, a triage system has been established for the initial assessment of claims, with investigatory and corporate intelligence expertise then deployed to contextualise claims for legal assessment. Meritorious claims will be assessed and financed on a portfolio basis by Sandton Capital which has dedicated £50m for crypto-related litigation; with portfolio facilities allowing for greater flexibility to finance multiple claims that otherwise would likely not have met funders’ investment thresholds had each claim been considered on a stand-alone basis.
