As of FY22, Burford Capital sourced 39% of group commitments via law firms and 61% directly from corporates. Law firms are a crucial origination channel for funders; the better the relationship with top law firms, the greater number of high-quality cases originated.
Over the last 6 months, we’ve been exploring the intricacies of the law firm / funder relationship. How does a law firm choose which funder to work with? How does a law firm choose which cases and how much to take on contingency vs receive funding? Is there any adverse selection embedded in the relationship?
This survey aims to answer some of these questions and help us understand how and why law firms originate funding and the process of choosing a funder.
