Deminor Recovery Services is delighted to announce the opening of its UK office in Kings Cross, London. Matt Cohen has joined our team as senior legal counsel for the UK/European market and will head the London office, along with being co-responsible for building out Deminor’s new commercial funding line.
Matt qualified as a debt capital markets lawyer with Latham & Watkins, working in both their London and Moscow offices. Subsequent to that Matt was an in-house VP counsel for Bank of America, working in tandem with the equity structured products trading desks. Immediately prior to joining Deminor, Matt was an investment manager for Innsworth Advisors, operating in the litigation funding space.
The UK litigation funding market represents a core focus for Deminor and given the depth of experience of local market participants, the partners of Deminor believe London represents an appropriate legal centre to rapidly scale up its wider commercial funding strategy. This is in addition to providing a further operational hub to continue to service shareholders’ rights as part of Deminor’s leadership position in the securities space, where there is scope for recovery opportunities on behalf of institutional investors.
With the addition of a permanent presence in London, Deminor wishes to both pursue new funding opportunities across the value spectrum in the commercial litigation and arbitration space, whilst remaining responsive to its pre-existing institutional clients’ needs in the local market.
We believe our experience in assisting 800+ institutional investors on cases throughout Europe, Japan and in offshore jurisdictions, in which our clients have recovered significant amounts, can be leveraged in our new business line of commercial litigation and arbitration funding to optimise outcomes for new clients.
Please feel free to contact Matt directly, via the details provided below.
