Burford Capital: The future of urban mobility

Corporate finance and litigation funding - Issue 3 FINAL_Page_01

Burford Capital and the Lawyer Research Service, a division of The Lawyer, have collaborated to produce a series of reports on the UK litigation financing market. This report, the second in the series, focuses on some of the more complex and less well understood funding structures available for companies and law firms involved in the litigation process.

The report is based on an online survey of 200 private practice litigation lawyers, inhouse counsel and corporate C-level executives. The survey was conducted in May and June 2015. To complement the survey data, interviews were conducted with the following individuals, some of who are quoted in the report:

  • Jeremy Cousins QC, Radcliffe
  • Simon Davenport QC, 3 Hare Court
  • Hefin Rees QC, 39 Essex Chambers
  • Ben Knowles, Partner, Co-Chair of Global Arbitration Group, Clyde & Co
  • Julian Connerty, Partner, Signature Litigation
  • Laurent Geelhand, Partner, Hausfeld
  • Sue Nash, Managing Director, Litigation Costs Services
  • Ashley Hurst, Partner, Olswang
  • Guy Harvey, Partner, Shepherd and Wedderburn
