Apex Litigation Finance appoint Mark Sands as Head of Insolvency

Litigation funding specialists Apex Litigation Finance have announced the appointment of Mark Sands as Head of Insolvency, where he will be taking overall responsibility for the company’s presence in the insolvency sector.

Mark has more than 35 years of experience in the insolvency profession, most recently in a senior role at Quantuma. A former President of the Insolvency Practitioners Association, Mark’s career previously included roles at KPMG and Tenon.

His career as a licensed insolvency practitioner has focused on working on the insolvencies of individuals and SMEs. Apex say that this focus makes him a strong fit for their business, as the firm specialises in supporting small/mid-sized claims rather than the multi-million-pound claim focus of other litigation funders.

Mark also brings a history of success with contentious insolvency. He believes that his ability to delve deep into cases will be an asset for Apex and its clients: “It’s an exciting time for the company, which has established itself as a force in the litigation funding market in a relatively short period. I am also thrilled to be joining a company breaking new ground with its use of innovative technology.

“Once cases are taken on, a thorough investigation can be the key to winning settlements. I am confident that my experience in investigation services will prove to be a great benefit. I will also be able to draw on my wide network of IPs, litigators and other professionals to grow Apex’s position in the insolvency sector.”

Apex CEO Maurice Power says: “It’s a pleasure to have Mark joining our team. His experience and expertise are perfect for the role, and we know that he will add huge value to our business and our clients.

“Testament to Mark’s abilities is his excellent track record in winning cases that have gone to court. Although we always prefer cases to settle without the need for a court hearing, Mark’s proven investigative ability and diligence can only strengthen our capability in ensuring positive outcomes for our clients and supporting access to justice.”
