Apex Litigation Finance to appoint Stephen Allinson as ‘Head of Legal’

Litigation funding specialists, Apex Litigation Finance have announced the appointment of Stephen Allinson, Solicitor and Licensed Insolvency Practitioner, as their new Head of Legal.

Stephen is a credit, debt and insolvency specialist who has worked in the field since 1987. His extensive background also includes setting up his own consultancy and before that he was a Business Recovery and Insolvency Partner at a major law firm. As well as acting as a consultant within the legal field, Stephen also pursues other projects in the legal, insolvency and credit fields, and is a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Law.

In addition to Stephen’s extensive licensed insolvency work, he has also been an Associate Member of the Association of Property and Fixed Charge Receivers. A multi-disciplinary consultancy whose council is selected through leading members of combined professions, to offer professional support in property, legal and insolvency matters.

Stephen says: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining the growing team at Apex. Without a doubt, litigation funding is now a vital area in the litigation sector. With its concentration on mid-tier claims, Apex is well placed to become a very important player in this market. I am looking forward to working with Maurice and the team, and with the many solicitors and insolvency colleagues who will, no doubt, wish to discuss opportunities with us.”

Furthermore, Stephen is no stranger to the position of Chairman as he was appointed Chairman of the Board of The Insolvency Service in January 2017, serving in that role until May 2021, and is also the Chairman of the Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB), a member of ICAEW Investigation Committee and a Chairman of the Methodist Church Disciplinary Process.

Apex CEO Maurice Power says: “We are excited to announce Stephen’s appointment and to welcome him to our growing team. His skill and experience will add real value to the Apex proposition and further cement our position as a litigation funder of choice for the insolvency sector.”

Apex was proud to attend and to sponsor the first in person R3 National Conference since COVID. The Apex team thoroughly enjoyed greeting new and existing contacts and demonstrating how the Apex funding model is a perfect fit for insolvency litigation.

As Apex continues to grow the team, they are keen to hear from interested individuals from various disciplines, including legal, insolvency, litigation funding, AI development, and business development. Specific litigation funding experience is not essential. Apex will look at an individual’s skillset and identify those who can contribute to their success.

Interested applicants are asked to contact Apex via enquiries@apexlitigationfinance.com by sending a current cv and details of why they would be the right fit for Apex.

About Apex Litigation Funding: Apex Litigation Finance Limited brings together experts from the legal and finance sectors to provide third party litigation funding to litigants (corporates, liquidators, and individuals) who are unable to pursue a claim due to the prohibitive cost of litigation. Although the claim may have merits, uncertainty over the total costs and the potential risk of being ordered to pay the defendant’s cost, should they lose the claim, prohibits access to justice for many claimants. Our process is augmented by artificial intelligence systems to assess risk. As a professional litigation funder, Apex will make available funds to pay legal and other costs associated with a claim in return for an agreed share of any successful return. If there is no recovery, or if the claim is lost, there is nothing to repay.
