Validity inaugurates the third wave of litigation finance

June 21, 2018

In 2006, Ralph Sutton saw the need for risk-sharing in commercial litigation and became a pioneer in developing the field of legal funding. Over the past 12 years, the legal finance industry has evolved from a novel, disruptive idea to an accepted and proliferating business model.

Major law firms now embrace legal finance to stay competitive and to boost profits, and funding helps clients resolve disputes on their merits, rather than the ability to pay.

We founded Validity to embody what we call the third wave in litigation finance. The third wave is focused on the original purpose of the legal profession: serving clients and solving legal problems. What matters most – and what will make the industry sustainable — is fairness. Validity is passionate about creating a more just legal system by enhancing access to capital at fair returns and by providing world-class expertise.
