What is The Equity Project?


Women are significantly underrepresented at the senior-most ranks of law firms and consistently earn less than their male peers.

The Equity Project is a ground-breaking initiative designed to close the gender gap in law by providing an economic incentive for change through a $50 million capital pool earmarked for financing commercial litigation and arbitration matters led by women. In this video, senior members of the Burford team explain:

  • Why Burford founded The Equity Project

  • The criteria for qualifying for Equity Project capital and how it works in practice

  • How The Equity Project can benefit women lawyers and businesses alike
