GLS Capital Raises $345 Million for Litigation Finance Fund



Trio of industry veterans launch fund to finance commercial and intellectual property litigation

CHICAGO – Jan. 27, 2020 — GLS Capital, LLC announced the completion of fundraising of its inaugural litigation finance fund, GLS Capital Partners Fund I, LP. Together with its affiliates, the Fund has investor commitments totaling more than $345 million.

The fund’s diverse institutional investor base includes global financial institutions, endowments, foundations and family offices.

GLS invests in complex situations involving commercial litigation and arbitration, as well as intellectual property disputes in both the technology and pharmaceutical industries. The firm will structure creative and flexible solutions for businesses and law firms that are looking to better manage litigation and balance-sheet risks.

“We are excited to launch our first fund in a growing and dynamic asset class,” said David Spiegel, Managing Director of GLS. “Our fundraising significantly exceeded our initial target size, reflecting a high level of investor interest in our ability to be successful.”

Spiegel and his co-founders, Adam Gill and Jamison Lynch, stand out as an experienced and tested team in litigation finance. They previously executed and managed more than $400 million in investments at two of the world’s largest litigation finance providers.

Before entering litigation finance, they were litigators at elite international law firms. Lynch also served as the co-head of global patent litigation at a leading pharmaceutical company.

The firm intends to harness the deep experience of its founders to efficiently evaluate investment opportunities and streamline the underwriting process. The founders form GLS’ investment committee and have full investment authority.
