Senior Investment Manager
Augusta Ventures LLPSenior Investment Manager
Oct. 2014 - Apr. 2018London, United KingdomI was one of the managers of the due diligence team to ensure that cases we financed would be successful. We objectively assessed each case on its merits and conducted an in-depth analysis of liability, causation and quantum to ensure we maintained our excellent track record of success. My team worked closely with Partners and Associates in reputable law firms to gather all the relevant information and evidence to enable us to make a detailed assessment and decide whether Augusta ought to invest in a particular case. I have experience in analysing a wide range of commercial litigation cases including breach of contract, shareholder disputes, commercial arbitration, insolvency disputes, professional negligence, intellectual property, competition and international investment treaty disputes. I developed expertise in managing a portfolio of investments from outset to completion and enforcement which resulted in substantial returns to the company and was actively involved in building relationships with stakeholders to ensure the growth of Augusta Ventures in the increasingly competitive market of third party funding.
