With affiliate offices in London, California and Toronto, we serve a global client base of businesses and law firms with our discretionary funds, single managed accounts and co-investment funds.
Our firm specializes in all types of commercial litigation finance across a broad spectrum of investments, including single case funding, portfolio finance, law firm funding and award monetization (purchasing of existing awards). At Erso, we believe in flexible and tailored litigation finance.
By choosing Erso as your funding partner, you’ll not only have access to one of the most experienced litigation funding team in the market, you’ll also benefit (if required) from the expertise of our affiliated litigation insurance team, TheJudge (ranked Band 1 by Chambers & Partners). Combined, this means we can provide litigation finance capital through to adverse costs (fee-shifting), contingency fee or judgement preservation insurance.
“Erso has succeeded in bringing the team’s substantial commercial litigation funding experience to the market with valuable partners and significant capital support. It has been a pleasure to have advised on the formation of Erso Capital and we look forward to working with the management team going forward.“
