The Bairs Foundation offers a litigation funding alternative to plaintiffs who need help making ends meet during the course of their lawsuits. At 7% simple interest, our model is substantially different from that of the vast majority of the non-recourse lending industry. In addition, we are aiming to change the funding space by motivating more organizations to do something similar. However, we can’t do it alone. The foundation is looking to join forces with like-minded members of the civil justice system to gain momentum and help more and more plaintiffs and their families.
The newest member of the Bairs Foundation’s board is John Richmond of Lipsitz & Ponterio, LLC, a plaintiff’s personal injury firm in Buffalo, NY. Since 2009, John has devoted his legal career to the representation of those who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of others. He represents a variety of clients, including those hurt by asbestos, healthcare provider negligence, motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, and more.
The team at the Bairs Foundation looks forward to working with John. We’re also always open to consider additions to our board. If our mission resonates with you and you’d like to get more involved, feel free to reach out to our Executive Director, Rachel Mathews, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
