The Equity Project: An economic incentive to increase diversity in the business of law


  • Liz Bigham, Aviva Will

We invite you to the launch of the next phase of Burford’s award-winning Equity Project.

Burford first launched The Equity Project in October 2018 to help close the gender gap in law, earmarking $50 million in legal finance capital to fund matters led by women. By shifting risk from the client or firm to a third party, women litigators and women-owned firms can use it to pitch clients with attractive fee arrangements; firms committed to gender diversity can encourage women litigators to pitch new business to firm management; and women can pursue leadership positions in significant matters and ease pathways towards origination and client relationship credit with funding providing a competitive edge.

We will hold a launch event to expand The Equity Project and explain how corporate legal teams and law firms can use it to incentivize diversity and inclusion goals.

The event will feature global business leaders and diversity change-makers on inclusive leadership and tangible actions to move the needle.
