Convergence of Impact Investing and Litigation Funding



Aristata Capital was founded in 2018 and is the first litigation funder dedicated to driving positive social and environmental change with an attractive financial return. Aristata has two key objectives:

1. Funding high quality litigation in order to achieve measurable social and environmental impact

2. Harnessing the power of private capital to drive systemic change at scale

​Aristata invests in a diversified portfolio of litigation cases across a range of impact sectors – including environment, climate change, human rights, justice reform, access to justice, foreign aid and equality - where law can be used as a potent tool for social and environmental change.


Aristata Team

Aristata is proud of the team that we have put together to execute our impact litigation strategy. The team has significant experience in the three core disciplines required for our strategy: impact investment; litigation management; and litigation funding.
