In 2009, Woodsford identified commercial litigation funding as a niche and fast growing sector with the potential to provide high uncorrelated returns to investors. Woodsford established Woodsford Litigation Funding (“WLF”) in 2010 to enter this relatively new segment. WLF is a specialist team of litigation and arbitration experts and other professionals investing in large commercial claims that the claimant may not be able, or want, to fund alone. WLF’s investment is primarily the provision of non-recourse capital – the money to pay legal bills and the other costs of litigation. However, the claimant and its legal team can, if they wish, also tap into WLF’s considerable litigation experience. In return WLF share the proceeds of successful claims.
In April 2016 Woodsford Litigation Funding was included on the Mischon de Reya Leap 100 list which identifies 100 of the most exciting, fast growing companies in the UK.
