SPONSORED POST: Litigation Finance Opportunity for ‘David vs. Goliath’ Case

Litigation Finance Primer

Loewinsohn Flegle Deary Simon is prosecuting a claim valued at $31m. We are raising $2.3m for return within 12 months, possible additional upside. $450k to close, balance on run rate 30 days net to trial.

The claimant is a single individual plaintiff who is a very credible former investment banker. Claimant is very knowledgeable and is committed to conclusion of the claim. One defendant is a large international financial institution and the second defendant is a highly liquid mortgage loan originator. Case documents are structured finance and real estate. Defendant’s counsel is a national general practice firm, lead defense counsel is 4-year partner. This is a complex financial claim, fact intensive, document case. Documents we hold support an opinion letter from a legal 500 firm at 80% chance of recovery. Damages are supported by preliminary economic expert and other case documents.

Why we believe we will win

This case arises out of a fraudulent foreclosure on plaintiffs’ home. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulated plaintiff who  has brought claims that will likely result in a verdict including actual damages of $31,880,288.014 for Breach of Contract, Fraud, Fraudulent Lien Against Real Property, Deceptive Trade Practices Act (“DTPA”) and Texas Debt Collection Act (“TDCA”).  Claimant was not in default, and allegations made against the plaintiff are proven to be false. The court records contain perjured statements, forged robo-signed affidavits, assignments, fraudulent liens, fraudulent appointment of substitute trustees and many other records. Defendants fraudulently concealed its lack of interest in the property by manufacturing evidence. These false allegations destroyed plaintiff’s credit, caused property loss, loss ofreputation and career. The jury will likely return a substantial verdict on the TDCA, which is a treble damages statute.

It is important to note that the jury will not be advised that  fraud finding results in an automatic trebling of actual damages and mental anguish under both the DTPA and TDCA. The Court’s judgment could be set at over $69,131,398.50.   Three of the four claims allow for the recovery of attorneys’ fees. In sum, the fraudulent conduct by Defendants supports “uncapped” exemplary damages. Given the result obtained by the Loewinsohn Firm against JP Morgan Chase last year, defendants have a powerful incentive to settle this case for close to the full amount of damages.

A Full litigation plan illustrates solid case of merits, liability, and damages for each claim. Plan includes analysis of defenses and key arguments. Data room is set up for due diligence. Case is on file in state court, no DCO or trial date. Preferential date will be requested within approximately 9 months. A Motion to dismiss was filed and denied.
