Curiam Capital is a private investment firm that provides financing for high-value litigation. Curiam specializes in finding flexible and creative solutions that allow parties to hire the lawyers of their choice to pursue strong legal claims. Curiam’s financing allows lawyers to free themselves from the conflicts and compromises that can complicate contingent-fee arrangements. Curiam’s investments are generally non-recourse. That means that Curiam gets an agreed-upon return only if the litigation is successful.
The majority external funder of Curiam Capital is Michael Platt. Mr. Platt co-founded and is the CEO of BlueCrest Capital Management, a private investment partnership and formerly one of the world’s largest hedge fund managers.
