Apex Litigation Finance brings Artificial Intelligence development inhouse to drive funding activity and further promote access to justice
Apex Litigation Finance (Apex) has today announced that it has cemented its position in the legal technology space by bringing its Artificial Intelligence (AI) capacity inhouse, building on an already innovative approach to case outcome predictive analytics.
The deployment of AI is enabling the company to speed up the delivery of litigation funding to its client base of solicitors, liquidators, individuals and corporates. Apex now have the means to fully control the development of AI technology to meet evolving requirements. The company believe this will greatly enhance the predictive analysis of risks and outcomes and increase its success in selecting which cases to fund.
The move to in-house technology follows a successful relationship with legal AI specialist CourtQuant, which saw Apex fully test and scope the capacity of AI tools in the litigation funding space. The inhouse solution will build on this experience and expertise, whilst creating value for Apex by building a best in class database
The AI development will be supervised by project manager Lukas Ruttkay, who brings extensive experience of tech project leadership and AI development to the company, having brought three successful online ventures to market.
Commenting on the move, Maurice Power, Apex CEO, said: “We are excited to bring the AI inhouse. Our development of AI will further inform our decision making, offer greater value funding solutions to clients, and provide comfort for investors. I am confident this capability will ensure that Apex maintains its position as a market leader in the sector.”
Apex specialises in providing funding for small to medium-sized matters where litigants may not have the means to pursue meritorious claims. Legal and other costs associated with a claim are funded, in return for an agreed share of any successful outcome. If there is no recovery, or if the claim is lost, there is nothing to repay as Apex offers non-recourse funding, taking on all the risk to protect claimants.
