Established in the UK in 2013 following Lord Justice Jackson’s 2010 ‘Civil Litigation Costs Review’, Augusta Ventures has since built one of the most highly regarded and capable third-party litigation funding platforms in the world; reducing financial risk by funding claimants in litigation and disputes in a multitude of sectors and contexts.
Globally networked from three major offices in London, Sydney and Toronto, we have provided over £585m of capital to enable claimants to bring important actions in a wide range of consumer and commercial disputes in multiple jurisdictions.
Known for its specialist sector teams and particular capability in handling highly complex claims, Augusta is a founder member of the Association of Litigation Funders (ALF) and follows the established Code of Conduct for Litigation Funders, published by the UK’s Civil Justice Council in 2011.
With the backing of one of the world’s largest investment management firms, we lead the field in many of the geographies where we operate. We have the capacity, expertise, and agility to fund cases in market-leading timeframes and stand shoulder to shoulder with law firms and claimants in sharing risk.
