Zachary D Krug
Senior Investment Officer
A trial litigator by training, with deep experience in both finance and law, Zachary Krug helps lead Woodsford’s US and international investments. Zachary believes strongly that access to justice should not be dictated by financial resources and that litigation finance can play a pivotal role in vindicating legal rights. At Woodsford, Zachary works closely with plaintiffs and lawyers to not only provide much needed capital, but to craft winning strategies from day one through to enforcement.
Zachary has extensive trial litigation experience, having represented both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of commercial disputes in state and federal courts in the United States, as well as in international proceedings. He has particular expertise in intellectual property disputes and technology related matters, complex business litigation and competitor disputes, government contracts and whistleblower actions, art related matters, and international human rights litigation.
Prior to joining Woodsford, Zachary was a Senior Associate in the Los Angeles office of the global litigation firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan. Prior to that, Zachary clerked for Judge Shira A. Scheindlin in the Southern District of New York and was an associate in the New York office of Shearman & Sterling, where he focused on international disputes and project finance.
Zachary received his J.D. from Cornell Law School, where he was an Articles Editor on the Cornell Law Review, and his B.A. from Yale University, where he was a Sulger Scholar. Zachary is fluent in Spanish.
