Many companies and institutions with meritorious legal claims find the costs associated with pursuing ligation prohibitive. Or they feel that the uncertainty and financial risks involved with these claims are too great.
For counsel, there are times where an engagement must be declined and an opportunity missed to further a client relationship because satisfactory financial arrangements cannot be achieved.
VINSON RESOLUTION MANAGEMENT CAN HELP.
Vinson Resolution Management (VRM) is a litigation finance company. The focus of our business is to assist clients in resolving legitimate and meritorious commercial disputes. Our business model is based on two key components:
• Providing capital to fund the costs of your litigation
NO OTHER ORGANIZATION POSSESSES THE TECHNOLOGY, THE DATA, OR THE SYSTEMS FOR CONDUCTING THIS TYPE OF ANALYSIS.
With these risk analysis technologies, we have attracted significant capital investments that we direct to clients for the prosecution of matters that meet our strict funding criteria.
VRM is uniquely positioned to offer CLIENTS the opportunity to:
• Mitigate the financial risk of pursuing meritorious claims
• Initiate cases that would otherwise be unaffordable
• Free-up funds that would have been needed for legal expenses
• Provide a mechanism for diversifying the fee arrangements in your portfolio of cases
• Help you maintain, grow or establish client relationships
In order to effectively evaluate and manage your litigation risks, VRM employs a thorough multi-phase underwriting process. The first step is a preliminary assessment of your potential claim. This is a brief, initial review undertaken by our Director of Legal Services to verify that the basic characteristics of the claim (type, size, jurisdiction) fit with our investment profile.
After completing this initial review and determining that it is consistent with our funding requirements, we will undertake a comprehensive risk analysis of the matter using the VRM Evaluation ProtocolSM technology. This proprietary technology allows us to evaluate the potential risks of your claim and provides us further insight into whether it falls within our delineated funding parameters.
Based upon the resulting Evaluation Score and a positive assessment by our Investment Committee, we will work with you to finalize the terms, conditions and financing structures for the prosecution of your claim.
VRM approaches litigation finance from a dispute resolution management perspective. We work closely with you and your trial counsel to establish litigation management plans and budgets that seek to promote efficient practices for obtaining a satisfactory result. And because of our unique and extensive experience in the legal services industry, we can provide you with assistance throughout every phase of litigation.
To learn more about our underwriting process, financing structures, and conditions for obtaining financing, please see Our Financing Process.
The VRM Evaluation ProtocolSM is a proprietary technology – developed and tested by Vinson Resolution Management – that assesses the merits of your claim and the potential for achieving a satisfactory recovery. It entails a scientific approach to our risk analysis and underwriting activities involving sophisticated mathematical and statistical models. It is a rigorous, detailed process that takes into account how your claim is likely to be perceived and assessed by:
• Expert Witnesses
• And Jurors
IT IS SYSTEMATIC. IT IS OBJECTIVE. AND IT IS COMPREHENSIVE.
Our proprietary technology aggregates behavioral science research, mathematical modeling techniques, and software applications that have been developed over the past 35 years.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS RELIABLE.
We have such confidence in these techniques that we are comfortable putting our capital at risk in order to help you pursue your claims.
Traditionally, the high costs of retaining expert witnesses, conducting jury research, and performing other functions associated with trial preparation mean that much of the critical information about a claim is only developed in the later stages of the litigation process, often too late to permit dispassionate assessment and cost/benefit evaluations of the worthiness of the case.
The VRM Evaluation ProtocolSM accelerates the case learning curve and permits VRM and its clients to make informed decisions much earlier and with greater economic efficiency than the traditional approach to litigation management. By moving the crucial information-gathering phase to the front end of the process, VRM more accurately estimates the value of various strategic approaches to resolving the claim.
While the VRM Evaluation ProtocolSM is a key component of VRM's underwriting procedures for the financing of litigation, it can also be employed in a variety of contexts to provide clients – plaintiffs, defendants, or related third-parties – with sophisticated insight into the value or risk associated with a given case. The benefits of the VRM Evaluation ProtocolSM analysis are exclusively available to VRM clients and cannot be obtained elsewhere.For more information, please see
