About you title bar

Worried about biting off more than you can chew? We'll share the financial burden.

Woodsford works with many different stakeholders involved in litigation or arbitration.

About you middle section

Law firms

Many of our cases are referred to us by law firms who have clients with strong cases, but who lack the resources to cover the costs of the litigation. When you send in a case, we commit to reviewing it promptly. When we fund your case, your bills will be paid by us in full, without delay and free of interference. Portfolio funding arrangements are available for law firms who handle a significant amount of claimant-side litigation or arbitration work.

 

Barristers

Woodsford works closely with several chambers and we would be delighted to build a relationship with more. If you have a client with a strong claim but without the funding needed to meet your costs, please contact us. We also instruct barristers when claimants come directly to us, and occasionally as part of our case reviewing process. If your chambers would like to know more about litigation funding for barristers, we will be happy to arrange a presentation. 

Claimants

If you have an meritorious claim and no legal team to prosecute it, perhaps due to lack of funds, don't despair: others have trodden this path before you. Litigation funding ensures that justice is accessible to everybody, not just to those with deep pockets. Send us details of your claim and, using our connections in the legal world, we will be happy to put you in touch with the right legal team.

About us row 2

In-house Counsel

Large, financially secure firms are increasingly turning to third-party litigation funding as a risk-management tool. If your company doesn't want to risk its balance sheet on a non-core activity such as litigation or arbitration, offloading all the financial risk whilst retaining a large amount of the upside could be attractive. 

 

 

Insolvency Practitioners

Insolvency practioners have long been users of litigation funding to pursue assets which, absent funding, may remain beyond the reach of creditors. Our case studies include examples of the successful partnerships we have enjoyed with insolvency practitioners. We are always on the lookout for new relationships in this area.

 

 

Finance Directors

Woodsford can help litigants manage the adverse accounting consequences of litigation. We pay the costs of litigation, avoiding drag on the profitability of the business. Our funding may allow the business to divert cash to other projects, assisting asset value. A successful litigation can then be viewed as both a positive cash and income event.
