Helping legal teams advance DEI/ESG goals

Burford’s award-winning Equity Project helps companies manage the cost and risk of their commercial disputes whilst also advancing DEI/ESG goals.

Since launching The Equity Project in 2018, Burford has committed a cumulative $145 million to finance commercial litigation and arbitration led by women and racially diverse attorneys.

Download our introduction to The Equity Project to learn how businesses can use Equity Project capital to advance their DEI/ESG goals alongside funding their litigation and arbitration fees and expenses or accelerating the value of pending claims—and our commitment to contribute on our clients’ behalf a portion of Burford's profits when Equity Project funded matters resolve successfully to charitable organisations that advance diversity in law.

The Equity Project may prompt us to ask additional questions of our outside counsel. Now that we are aware of it, it could change the way we approach litigation."
