Juridica Investments Ltd., one of a handful of major commercial litigation funders, said Wednesday that it is halting investments in new cases and cutting costs in the wake of courtroom setbacks. The news comes amid accelerating interest in litigation funding, including at many Am Law 100 firms.

It currently has $200 million in assets under management, the company reported.
