Burford 2022 Client Outlook

Download now

The past two years have been defined by change—and adapting to it. At Burford, we have spent that time growing alongside our corporate and law firm clients to help them navigate the unprecedented business challenges they have faced.

As we wrap another year of results for our investors, we are proud to provide our clients the following perspective on Burford’s business, the industry and our team. This year, three key themes emerged: 

  • Demand for legal services is at a high—as is demand for legal finance and the cost- and risk-sharing solutions it provides
  • CFOs, GCs and law firm lawyers are hungry for data, but need help understanding it
  • Choosing an experienced, well-capitalized legal finance partner matters 

Download the 2022 Burford Client Outlook to learn how growing our investment portfolio, expanding our relationships with companies and making data-driven decisions will benefit our clients in the year to come.
