Dealing with the downturn

Legal finance offloads legal costs and unlocks legal asset value to provide liquidity

Companies and law firms can use legal finance to respond to the economic challenges they now face, including constrained capital and reduced legal budgets.  

In the last recession, many firms were forced to reduce headcount and were under-resourced when clients needed them most. Likewise, many corporates were forced to forgo meritorious claims due to reduced legal budgets and limited access to counsel.

Burford solves these challenges with legal finance solutions that enable them to offload legal costs and increase access to working capital. We provide financing of fees and expenses for commercial litigation and arbitration as well as advance the value of expected future awards. With access to ample permanent capital and more than a decade of industry leadership, Burford is an ideal partner for companies and law firms.
