Now with more than $1.1 billion in assets under management, we are working with more clients than ever before, providing still more innovative solutions to the leading law firms, companies, universities and other entities that aim to limit the risk of pursuing meritorious legal positions, or grow by leveraging meritorious claims as valuable assets.
