We are delighted to announce that specialist, tier 1 Chambers & Partners ranked, litigation insurance broker TheJudge Group has been acquired by the Thomas Miller Group, an international provider of market leading insurance and professional services.
TheJudge, established in 2000, joined the Thomas Miller Group’s portfolio of specialist insurance and financial services businesses, which currently writes more than $10bn of insurance capacity a year and has over USD $3.5bn AUM, operating from 18 offices around the world.
In a further significant move following the acquisition, former owners of the TheJudge together with Thomas Miller have launched a new litigation finance company, Erso Capital.
Between discretionary funds, single managed accounts and co-investment funds, Erso has access to capital in excess of USD $1.0 billion.
Erso Capital will be led by founders Matthew Amey, James Blick and James Delaney, all of whom are long serving directors and former owners of TheJudge. The team are highly experienced industry professionals having been active in the market since its inception.
Erso Capital will invest in litigation and arbitration finance opportunities across the globe. Erso Capital’s substantial institutional investors means it can consider opportunities from as low as £200,000 capital commitments to sums exceeding £200m.
Matthew Amey, one of the co-founders at Erso Capital advises: “we’ve been delighted with the response both from the media and law firms around the world. We look forward to putting our capital to work across a broad spectrum of commercial disputes as quickly as possible”.
Erso Capital’s main offices are in London led by James Delaney and Matthew Amey and California, led by James Blick.
Erso is open for business and is actively reviewing litigation and arbitration opportunities around the world.
