Scout Law Group, a nationally recognized law firm based in Arizona, announced a new partnership with Miami-based investment firm, 777 Partners, that will instantly create one of the most well-funded plaintiffs’ law firms in the country dedicated to creating access to legal services.
In 2021, Arizona became the first state in the country to permit non-lawyer ownership of law firms, enabling co-ownership agreements between lawyers and non-lawyers through alternative business structures. The goal, as the Arizona Supreme Court noted, was to encourage innovation in the delivery of legal services and to transform the public’s access to legal justice.
Through this new partnership, Scout Law Group now becomes one of the nation’s first law firms to partner with a private investment firm and begins operating as an alternative business structure. A top-tier Arizona firm for over 25 years led by attorney Steve German, Scout Law combines expert counsel in the areas of wrongful death, medical malpractice, and disability with a uniquely compassionate approach to representation.
The backing of 777 Partners will now enable the firm to bring that same approach to representing plaintiffs in many of the most impactful legal actions in the country. The firm already represents plaintiffs in the Camp Lejeune, Elmiron and NEC mass tort cases. Additionally, under a unique fee sharing arrangement, a portion of Scout Law Group’s fees will be donated to a local nonprofit organization to advance the cause of justice.
“Access to legal justice should have no bounds, and companies should no longer be able to hide behind the very barriers that make it difficult for people to seek accountability,” said Steve German, Scout Law Founding Partner. “Joining forces with 777 Partners will allow Scout Law to help people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to demand accountability on an individual level. That increased access to legal services is exactly what the ABS model is designed to enable, and we’re so proud to be leading the charge.”
Steve German’s fierce advocacy and expert guidance have earned him a reputation for handling complex cases and securing multi-million dollar victories. Across both federal and state cases, German has successfully litigated toxic torts, bad faith insurance, medical malpractice, and transportation design claims, among many others.
This partnership with Scout Law Group builds upon 777’s long history of investing in the litigation finance space through which it has created a foothold supporting plaintiffs, attorneys, experts, and other essential legal service providers. Through its cutting-edge partnership with Scout Law Group, 777 will provide numerous resources including, but not limited to, capital, strategic insight, institutional relationships, and robust operational support to amplify growth and expand access to legal services.
“We are thrilled to partner with Scout Law Group and supercharge the firm’s mission to increase access to legal resources and services,” said Steven Pasko, Founder and Managing Partner at 777 Partners. “We look for opportunities with flexible and scalable growth that benefit both parties so our collaboration with Scout Law Group, and its commitment to creating a new kind of law firm committed to delivering justice for all, is a perfect fit.”
