Founders Owen Cyrulnik and Ross Wallin launched the new litigation finance firm, Curiam Capital LLC, in February 2018 with financial backing from Bluecrest founder Michael Platt. Alt Credit commented: “Once a niche sector within private credit, litigation finance is on the cusp of becoming mainstream.” Rounding out the senior team is Managing Director Molly Pease.
The article highlights the vast litigation experience of the Curiam team, which strengthens the firm’s financing capabilities: “True to its heritage, Curiam still invests in financial litigation cases, with a bias towards antitrust, securities, patents and high-value contract disputes. However, the firm has a broad focus on big-ticket commercial litigation cases.”
Thanks to its strong start in 2018, Curiam plans to expand its firm in the new year. “To date, Curiam is understood to have put around two-thirds of its initial capital to work through a PE-style drawdown fund. The firm has hired one junior analyst, with plans for additional hires in the coming months.”
