Lina Kolomoitseva is the Senior Investment Manager based in LCM’s Brisbane office.
A skilled and experienced Senior Investment Manager, Lina is expert at identifying and assessing prospective funding opportunities, structuring bespoke litigation finance arrangements, and managing funded claims to a successful outcome for LCM’s clients.
Specialising in disputes funding since joining LCM in 2014, Lina has a proven track record of successfully developing, monitoring and guiding claims to resolution, and she continues to oversee a significant portfolio of multi-million-dollar investments across various jurisdictions and sectors, including commercial, insolvency, intellectual property and class action proceedings. Lina also brings her experience to bear as a member of LCM’s Investment Committee, and in advancing LCM’s broader industry initiatives, including regulation advocacy and funding product development and education.
Prior to stepping into her role with LCM, Lina gained over a decade of experience as a commercial litigator, advancing complex claims with respected private practice disputes teams. In that time, Lina’s expertise was focused on trade practice, contract, negligence and insolvency disputes, as well as intellectual property, confidence and defamation actions.
Lina is a keen advocate for the wide-ranging advantages and opportunities that disputes finance products can offer our clients. In Lina’s view “with the benefit of LCM’s tailored approach, we are able to deliver valuable solutions to a very broad range of claimants – to impecunious individuals as effectively as well-resourced businesses; offering access to justice for group claims as effectively as offering innovative monetisation and risk mitigation solutions for sophisticated corporates”.
