LexShares Ranked by Chambers for Second Consecutive Year
LexShares is pleased to announce our inclusion in the 2022 Litigation Support Guide published by Chambers and Partners, which again ranked the firm as a leading litigation funder in the U.S.
This year’s research findings highlighted the breadth of LexShares’ work with law firms and corporate plaintiffs, as well as its technical prowess. Diamond Mine, the firm's proprietary origination software, has sourced thousands of investment opportunities per day and was included in the 2022 Chambers LawTech guide.
Regarded as the gold standard in legal industry research, Chambers’ independent rankings consider several factors including key performance benchmarks, areas of specialization, and numerous confidential interviews conducted with clients and other industry participants. Interviewees lauded LexShares’ efficiency, flexibility, and entrepreneurial mindset.
“They understand cases and clients,” one reference said. “They have a very efficient system for reviewing and evaluating matters. They make quick decisions. On billing, they are superb.”
In addition, two LexShares team members were named Global 100 Leaders in Litigation Finance in Lawdragon's latest industry rankings. Cayse Llorens (Chief Executive Officer) and Allen Yancy (Director of Investments) each earned the honor for a second straight year.
“These accolades clearly underscore the excellent reputation that LexShares has established among leading legal practitioners,” said Mr. Llorens. “Litigation funding has emerged as a dynamic financial tool for law firms and corporate plaintiffs with strong claims. Backed by an extensive supply of deployable capital, including the firm’s $100 million dedicated fund, LexShares Marketplace Fund II, our team is excited to continue forming trusted partnerships within the legal community and supporting access to justice for claimants.”
Since 2014, LexShares has invested more than $100 million through its privately managed funds and online marketplace. The firm has worked with top boutique, mid-sized, and AmLaw firms on complex cases at all stages of litigation, funding a range of commercial matters, case portfolios, law firm financing arrangements, and settlement acceleration deals. LexShares is led by accomplished former litigators, investment professionals, and creative operators who boast more than 70 years of combined industry experience.
