Having just posted on litigation funding, we got an email the very next day:
I discovered your practice through the mentioned matter and believe we are well-aligned to help one another moving forward.
One odd thing about this “cold-call” solicitation was that it came under a subject line which had the name of a past LEVENTHAL pllc client whose case settled and dismissed a year ago (the so-called “mentioned matter’). But the so-called “mentioned matter” was a client’s very private and personal matter which we have never mentioned (outside of the lawsuit itself).
Do we conclude that the email was bot-drafted arbitrary mash-up of the recent blog post and some other web-accessible data about a LEVENTHAL pllc case? Coincidence?
We also note that $1M-$10M cases were apparently “historically too small” for litigation funding. Query whether “scalability,” a buzzword du jour, could mean an expansion of litigation funding to so-called small cases? (Most LEVENTHAL pllc clients would be stunned to learn that a $500,000 lawsuit is thought of as “a small lawsuit.”)
