Description

LEVEL PROVIDES ACCESS to justice for its clients by levelling the playing field of litigation, ensuring litigants can access the most appropriate legal representation when they need it most. While many litigants have a significant entitlement or claim, they often do not have the liquid capital to pay their legal fees in order to reach a resolution.

Level’s co-founders Katie Alexiou and George Williamson believe that lack of access to funds should not equate to a lack of access to justice. The company launched in 2017, combining George’s expertise in finance (as a senior private client wealth manager) and Katie’s expertise in family law (as a former solicitor at a top family law firm) to make a powerful and life-changing difference to clients’ lives.

Since its launch, Level has solidified its reputation as the leading funder for private client and matrimonial disputes, working with the top private client law firms in the country and becoming the top-ranked matrimonial funder in the country in 2020, achieving the highest possible ranking in Chambers & Partners.

Level’s success can be attributed to its in-house family law expertise, the team’s innovative solutions and an unrelenting focus on mutually trusting relationships with the solicitors they work with.

Rosie Schumm, Partner at Forsters LLP, says, ‘Level echoes the first class, bespoke service offered by the elite family firms. With a personal touch and excellent service, they understand the complexities of cases from only an initial call and give swift decisions, delighting practitioners and clients alike.’

Many solicitors have noted that Level has a deep understanding of the emotional, financial and time pressures associated with litigation. Policies around safeguarding, affordability and vulnerability inform every decision.

This year, Level proudly partnered with Support Through Court, a charity providing practical, procedural and emotional support to litigants in person. Level’s ethos, flexibility, and commitment to exceptional personal service has allowed them to adapt to the needs of the family law market and helped many people going through litigation achieve a swifter and fairer outcome.
