Since 2012, Burford Capital’s research has shown the increased use of litigation finance and highlighted the significant opportunities for law firms and clients. The latest survey continues this trend.
A long-awaited report on third-party funding in international arbitration has just been released in draft, and it reads like a relic of another era.
The following case studies illustrate the many ways acceleration can help clients and law firms meet financial deadlines at the end of the year.
As the world’s largest provider of finance for commercial litigation and arbitration, Burford offers its perspective on the report recently received by the ICCA-Queen Mary Task Force on Third-Party Funding in International Arbitration.
As litigation finance becomes increasingly common, the question of its disclosure occasionally arises. Two Burford MDs will join a roundtable to discuss the topic in ways that are thoughtful and constructive to lawyers and the legal community.
Construction disputes are famously high stakes—but the use of third-party financing can change the dynamic.
Burford weighs in on one of the persistent questions that clients and lawyers have about using external finance: Whether doing so will in any way impact control of strategy, settlement or other litigation-related decision-making.

Lawyers from leading law firms discuss the growth of litigation finance (and some of the most common misconceptions surrounding the industry), and explain how their firms and clients are using it.
Payment collection delays have caused law firms to seek new options to pay partners, boost reported revenue and offset financial uncertainty in the fourth quarter.
To meet a clear need, Burford has developed solutions to help law firms and their clients finance litigation and legal costs more efficiently in the fourth quarter and gain immediate access to capital at the time of year when costs are the most highly scrutinized.
