The arrangement is the first between a litigation funder and law firm focusing on claimants within energy and mining. It will enable claimants to fund the costs of various legal disputes which could include disputes with joint venture partners or with governments, both via litigation in the courts or international arbitration. The Memery Crystal and Woodsford combined offering is designed to assist in both hedging risk and in managing exposure to legal costs.
