Christopher Bogart addresses the future of legal finance for The Australian

October 20, 2019

In a guest essay for The Australian, Burford CEO Christopher Bogart describes the future he sees for legal finance there and abroad: “Legal finance in Australia is at an inflection point, as it is around the world—but not the one you might think.” Mr. Bogart outlines the need for the entire industry to have “Public filings in onshore jurisdictions; audited financial statements; internal financial, legal and compliance controls; adequate long-term capital; major institutional investors”—hallmarks of transparency and reliability that Burford already provides. He notes, “Transparency gives Burford a distinct advantage that is cited by the lawyers we work with as a clear differentiator. We hope that in the years to come more will follow our example”.
