London, United Kingdom, (24th November, 2011) – TheJudge, an established broker in the litigation risk transfer market, recently commented on the planned government cutbacks to the legal aid fund.

The UK government has recently announced that they plan to cut £350 million to the legal aid fund and, as a result, this could significantly affect people who require legal services. The new plan has been subject to much criticism as many people believe that it is unconstitutional and will directly impact people who require legal access to justice the most. Therefore, many people who desperately need legal aid will be unable to bring their case to court or may be forced to act as their own litigants, and this could cause significant court delays due to their legal inexperience.

TheJudge is a leading litigation risk transfer broker that can provide exceptional third party funding to their clients. Due to the recent cutbacks to the legal aid fund, many claimants will now be looking for alternative litigation insurance and funding options. TheJudge recently announced that they are now developing innovative products which they believe could fill the inevitable gap left by the new government proposals.

Matthew Amey, Director of TheJudge, commented: “The recent government legal aid cutbacks will undoubtedly prevent many people who require legal services the chance to bring their cases to court. However, here at TheJudge we believe in offering the best third party funding and litigation insurance which could take away all or some of the burden of legal expenditure. We are now developing original solutions which we believe will provide future clients with a fantastic alternative to government legal aid.”
