Reports to                         Chief Executive Officer / Founder



Job Summary



Experienced commercial litigator to lead all efforts in valuing commercial litigation cases for investment purposes and then monitoring those cases for investment purposes.



Commercial litigation finance is a rapidly growing new industry that combines capability to value commercial litigation cases and experience in making successful private equity investments decisions.



Veridis Management LLC (“Veridis”) manages an investment fund that invests in meritorious commercial litigation claims that can be reasonably valued from a litigation perspective as well as from an investment perspective. Veridis has already raised committed capital and is actively investing in a variety of cases. Veridis invests in individual claims or portfolios of claims, where the interests of the fund, litigants, and trial lawyers are aligned and there is a financial relationship that is beneficial for all.



Veridis seeks to add a key member of its team to lead efforts valuing litigation cases from both a liability and damages perspective and then monitoring those litigation investments. The position will report directly to the Chief Executive Officer / Founder.



Summary of Essential Job Functions



This candidate must have at least 10 years of experience litigating in multi‐million dollar commercial litigation cases in a capacity where the candidate was primarily responsible for determining the value of cases for settlement purposes. Extensive trail and mediation experience is preferred for the position.



The ideal candidate will have worked on all aspects of a case in the litigation cycle, including case analysis, dispositive motion practice, fact and expert discovery, settlement negotiations and trial. The ideal candidate may also have in-­‐house experience managing a book of litigation.



The candidate must have exceptional skills and experience analyzing litigation risk. The candidate must have the ability to lead a small internal team and work collaboratively with clients and their counsel in evaluation litigation risk.



Litigation skills are necessary for underwriting and investment management, but the position involves the evaluation of litigation risk. It is not a litigation role and not a case management role. The most critical sage in the evaluation process is when the fund makes the initial investment in the case. 



Minimum Requirements





  • 10+ years of appropriate professional experience, including primary responsibility managing a heavy case load


  • Extensive experience litigating and mediating diverse causes of action


  • An acceptable academic record


  • A reputation in the Bar for integrity and civility


  • Enthusiasm for business and finance




Preferred Attributes





  • Extensive litigation and mediation experience


  • Federal clerkship experience


  • Extensive experience evaluating litigation risk and alternative fee arrangements




Other Requirements





  • Ability to multitask, and to "switch gears" quickly


  • Team player who is collaborative and resourceful


  • Comfortable dealing with all levels of personnel


  • Relationships with high-quality lawyers specializing in diverse jurisdictions and areas of law who can assist in the evaluation of litigation risk


  • Solution-oriented and client-oriented thinker


  • Excellent communication skills with people of all different backgrounds




Veridis is a startup. Thus, the company requires self-motivating, creative, innovative, fast-moving and flexible people who do not need the infrastructure of a large firm or company to succeed.



Compensation & Benefits



Flexible with a preference toward modest current compensation with significant performance-based compensation. Veridis maintains a medical plan for employees and their families.
