About TheJudge

Established in 2000 with offices in London, Manchester, California and Toronto, TheJudge is a specialist broker of After-the-Event litigation insurance (also known as ATE insurance) with access to competitive litigation funding products for law firms and their clients.  We are one of the most connected and experienced teams in this highly specialized market.

Neither the litigation insurance market nor the litigation funding market can hope to meet the needs of all clients in isolation. Whether you have a cash-flow requirement or are simply seeking to achieve budget and risk certainty over your legal spend, it is vital that you understand the mechanics of the different types of products and what they can offer you.

Our value to you lies in our overarching view of both the litigation insurance and litigation funding markets. We have unrivalled experience in tailoring arrangements that consider and, where appropriate, combine both options.  Our hands on and bespoke approach ensures we understand your fee objectives and build commercial solutions to match.
