Vannin Capital, the specialist dispute resolution funding provider, is delighted to announce that it has significantly strengthened its team, most notably with three senior appointments which will support the group as it continues to deliver strong growth.

Former High Court Judge, Sir Stephen Silber, has joined Vannin as Chairman of the Investment Committee, together with international arbitration expert, Bernard Hanotiau. Both will assist in the review of potential and ongoing cases, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge relating to the judgement, arbitration and mediation of complex legal cases, which will prove invaluable to the group’s rigorous assessment process.

Additionally, Paul Morris has been appointed to the group’s Board as a non-executive director. Paul’s expertise in the legal sector, and especially litigation, will further strengthen Vannin’s board and complements its existing legal and commercial skill set.

Commenting on the appointments, Nick Verardi, Director of Vannin said:

“To have attracted three senior legal professionals of such eminence is testament to Vannin and the business which we have built since 2010. We have continued to strengthen our team in recent months and it now encompasses wide-ranging legal and commercial skills which we believe will enable us to fulfil our ambitious growth targets.

I am delighted to welcome Stephen, Bernard and Paul to the team and I look forward to working with them to drive future progress.”

Vannin is also pleased to announce today the launch of its new website,, a sophisticated platform where users can find full details of the Vannin team and keep up to date with the latest news and developments on its blog.

Vannin adopts a unique technology-backed approach to litigation funding and its new website is a reflection of this approach. The company has developed a proprietary/bespoke technology platform which enables it to manage its cases in a secure environment. Built and managed in house this platform underpins the group’s ability to review cases more efficiently and effectively, as reflected in its excellent case success rate.

Nick Verardi added, “Technology is an important element of our business model, reflecting our private equity backing and mentality. Our new website provides up-to-date information and content in an attractive and innovative way.”
