PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartAdvocate®, the incredibly powerful, web-based, integrated case management system designed for personal injury, mass tort litigation, medical malpractice and other litigation practices, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic alliance with litigation finance company Simia Capital.
Simia Capital offers pre/post-settlement funding to seriously injured plaintiffs who are represented by attorneys. They also provide funding for surgery in cases where the plaintiff is uninsured or where the insurance carrier has disclaimed or cut the plaintiff off from receiving medical benefits. The company is comprised of industry veterans. Simia's CEO, Patrick Preece, was one of the first bankers in the litigation funding space and its head of underwriting is an experienced personal injury litigator who had his own personal injury practice for almost 20 years.
"The addition of Simia Capital to our growing roster of business partners continues to enable us to bring added value to our clients," said Arnie Baum, COO of SmartAdvocate. "Litigation can be a long and arduous process. Having a reliable and willing source of settlement funding can be critical to achieving optimal results. The people at Simia understand this, and we're delighted to be able to bring their expertise and resources to our clients."
"We are excited to partner with SmartAdvocate," said Patrick Preece, Simia's CEO. "Law firms that utilize SmartAdvocate do so because they want to be as efficient as possible, and they realize that improved efficiency brings better outcomes for their clients. Our funding takes the financial pressure off plaintiffs, leaving their attorneys free to pursue the best possible case results. It's a great fit and a win-win for those firms and their clients."
"Simia is extremely well capitalized and has the ability to fund any size case. Our business philosophy is not to let rates interfere with helping plaintiffs. Simia prides itself on working with law firms and plaintiffs to provide them the lowest rates possible. Simia's combination of seasoned financing professionals and experienced litigation attorneys, together with its desire to build long-term relationships, makes it a great business partner for law firms.
