BURFORD CAPITAL LIMITED


Burford is the clear leader. Lawyers trust Burford as the world’s most experienced, transparent and well-capitalized provider of finance to the legal market. London Stock Exchange-traded and with over $3 billion committed to the legal market, Burford pioneered institutional-quality commercial litigation finance and has a team of over 80 in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific, who work with clients around the world. Burford was founded in 2009. As Time Warner’s former general counsel, CEO Christopher Bogart had crafted the $35 million fee paid to Cravath for its work on the AOL/Time Warner merger—then the largest corporate contingency fee in history. As a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center, CIO Jonathan Molot had investigated market solutions to address the impact of unequal financial resources on litigation outcomes. Burford has continued to grow based on client need and its excellence in meeting that need. We set the gold standard in the field.
