CHICAGO, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gerchen Keller Capital, LLC is the number-one litigation finance firm with which to do business, according to just-released independent survey results.
The survey, conducted by the well-known legal industry website Above the Law, is the first independent effort to rank litigation finance providers. It targeted companies and law firms that have worked with legal finance firms, and it focused on the client relationship—perhaps the most critical issue when selecting a finance partner. Survey respondents ranked Gerchen Keller highest among U.S. litigation finance firms in every reported measurement.
"Positive client engagement has been our top priority from day one," Gerchen Keller Chief Executive Officer Adam Gerchen said. "We operate in an environment where trustworthiness and a reputation for fair dealing drive long-term relationships and joint success. As a leader in an important new industry, we must set the standard for client service. In that regard, these survey results are extremely gratifying."
Respondents addressed whether they would partner with their chosen litigation finance firm again and what their overall level of satisfaction was with the selected funders. Measured against seven competitors, Gerchen Keller enjoyed the survey's highest "client satisfaction" score. The survey also ranked Gerchen Keller highest on the litmus-test question: "Would you choose to partner with this litigation finance firm again in the future?" More than 80% of relevant respondents said "Yes, definitely." In contrast, some market-leading firms received only 20% support.

Above the Law highlighted one respondent's description of GKC as "a top-notch professional organization with a strong commitment to its cases both in terms of depth of understanding and responsiveness. . . . They are a real pleasure to work with and in my experience, an exemplar to the litigation finance industry."
In reporting on the results, Above the Law noted that an important differentiator among legal finance firms is the quality of consulting services and subject-matter expertise in underlying legal claims. "It stands to reason that these sorts of factors may have played an important role in garnering our high survey ratings," Gerchen Keller Managing Director Travis Lenkner said. "The strength of our team, our creativity in structuring deals, and our flexibility in pricing set us apart."
