An Unanticipated Beginning
Grounded by a leg injury and unable to trade, Chicago Board Options Exchange market-maker James Tharin found an unexpected opportunity. Tasked with creating a market for BMW M5 Litigation settlement coupons, Tharin established the foundation of what would become Mitena Partners.
Expansion and Diversification
Conception of a Market Leader
Incorporated as Certificate Clearing Corporation (CCC), the firm pioneered markets in 18 class action settlements over two decades, enabling claimants to recover nearly $200 million. From small cases to complex ones, CCC proved its mettle, even venturing into coupon and certificate settlements.
A Pivot Towards Securities Class Action Claim Filing
A notice in the Options Antitrust Litigation marked a turning point. As a non-member during the 12-year class period, Tharin argued he should be eligible to submit trades and participate in the settlement, thus expanding CCC's scope to securities class action claim filing.
The Emergence of Mitena Partners
In 2020, Mitena Partners was established as a subsidiary of CCC to transform the antitrust consumer class action landscape- starting with the Payment Card Settlements. Building on CCC's established reputation and experience, Mitena Partners has continued to innovate, providing class action services tailored to associations and their members.
