Justina Stewart assists on Tresartis launch



Justina Stewart has been working closely with Sandton Capital Partners on the launch of Tresartis, a litigation funder focused on insolvency related claims.

Private equity and special situations institutional investor, Sandton Capital Partners, has announced the launch of Tresartis, a new litigation funding platform focused on insolvency related claims which forms part of Sandton’s “IP Unlock” offering. The platform consists of a team of specialist solicitors and Outer Temple member Justina Stewart. Justina is acting as external counsel to Tresartis, contributing her deep, practical and commercial knowledge of insolvency litigation, ATE insurance and litigation funding.

What is Tresartis?

Tresartis purchases claims or provides funding for insolvency practitioners to litigate promising cases which may otherwise struggle to realise potential for creditors due to lack of financial resources.

Matt Meehan, Head of Sandton UK said: “There is significant demand in the insolvency sector for financial solutions that deliver results which optimise value quickly, flexibly and transparently. This demand will grow with the end of the insolvency measures that were extended to support businesses during the pandemic. This will undoubtedly lead to an influx of distressed businesses facing potential insolvency. It is here where Sandton and Tresartis can help. Justina’s and the wider team’s litigation insolvency expertise complements Sandton’s position as a flexible and long-term capital provider for special situations to deliver a powerful package to maximise value for IPs/Estates.”

Justina said…

“I don’t envy the position in which IPs frequently find themselves, tasked with optimising returns for creditors but with little or no financial capital to pursue options such as litigation.   Even when there are meritorious claims, with limited options to date in the market for buying or funding claims, IPs have had limited negotiating leverage with funders. With the entry of Tresartis, insolvency practitioners have a fresh route for exploring how to comply with their duties.  I would add that, having worked with Sandton for some time, I have been struck by their collaborative, transparent, flexible and commercial approach – important qualities when considering which litigation funder to go with.  Therefore, I am delighted to be part of the team providing this fresh offering to the market.”
