Litigation finance treats litigation claims as financeable assets, just like real estate or receivables. Burford’s capital is used by businesses to pay legal expenses, relieve budget and P&L pressure, and monetize legal claims as the valuable assets they are. Litigation finance can also serve as an accounting tool, allowing businesses to litigate claims without impacting corporate balance sheets.

Burford clients range from small businesses to the world’s largest companies. We’ve helped them secure:

  • Funding of legal case expenses
  • Corporate debt facilities linked to a legal claim
  • Funding for a portfolio of pending litigation
  • Financing or sale of uncollected judgments
  • Support to reach terms with lawyer of choice
  • Contingent or conditional fee arrangements with an hourly fee lawyer
  • Litigation-related insurance and risk solutions
  • Monetization of a litigation asset at the beginning of a case, or after judgment or appeal
