About Nudorra Capital

Nudorra Capital is a litigation loan company that works with law firms and provides loans to plaintiffs in need of financial assistance until their case settles.

We are not an insurance company nor licensed insurance brokers. As a value-added service to our customers and through a strategic relationship we have with a fully licensed and regulated insurance broker, Nudorra Capital is offering to finance $50,000 in ATE insurance coverage at No Extra Cost to your client, when they get a new litigation loan of $3500 or more from Nudorra Capital.

What’s more, if your law firm already has ATE insurance coverage on a particular file, our $50,000 ATE insurance coverage will act as an addition to your existing policy. Or you have the option of purchasing additional ATE insurance as a separate policy, on top of our coverage, for additional protection.
