Burford Capital, the leading global finance and asset management firm focused on law, is proud to be a founding member of the International Legal Finance Association (ILFA), which launched today.
ILFA will be the global voice of the commercial legal finance industry, representing its interests before governmental bodies, international organizations and professional associations and serving as a clearinghouse of relevant information, research and data about the uses and applications of commercial legal finance. It was created as a direct result of the seismic growth of the commercial legal finance industry worldwide.
Christopher Bogart, CEO of Burford, commented: “ILFA is another milestone in the evolution of the commercial legal finance industry and demonstrates that even further growth is anticipated in the next decade. Just as Burford’s own business has grown exponentially on a global scale, so has the commercial legal market, and establishing an international association is not only the right thing to do, but a necessary move to make.”
He continued: “The market has matured rapidly in the last decade, with commercial legal finance being increasingly used, including by some of the world’s largest companies. A global association will support the interests of both the providers and users of commercial legal finance, and we are proud that Burford will play a significant role as a founding member of ILFA.”
ILFA is incorporated in Washington, DC, with a significant presence in London and a worldwide membership. More information about ILFA can be found here.
