About Woodsford

Woodsford: holding corporates to account and delivering access to justice

Since 2010 Woodsford has been helping to hold corporates to account for their egregious behaviour. Whether it is helping consumers achieve collective redress, ensuring that inventors and universities are properly compensated when Big Tech infringes intellectual property rights, or helping shareholders in collaborative, escalated engagement up to and including litigation with listed companies, Woodsford is committed to ESG and access to justice. Working with most of the world’s leading law firms, our strength lies in the combination of our legal experience, investment, business and technical expertise, together with significant financial resource.

Woodsford is an established global ESG business. We have a demonstrable track-record of helping thousands of investors, consumers and other stakeholders engage with major corporations in relation to serious breakdowns in environmental, social and corporate governance standards.

Ultimately, we help hold these companies to account, and we help those affected by ESG breakdowns to secure compensation.

We are particularly well-known for working with institutional shareholders in public companies in collective, escalated engagement, up to and including litigation.

We are also experts in delivering tailored financial solutions to meet the specialist needs of law firms and their clients involved in all types of commercial litigation and arbitration across the globe.

As experienced litigators, we have a deep understanding of the litigation and arbitration process. What’s more, we appreciate the pressures these situations bring and the importance of delivering the appropriate financial support in a timely manner.

We are a financially strong company with our own capital. This allows us to make investment decisions rapidly and move quickly to support those seeking redress for a serious breakdown of ESG standards or claimants looking to finance their large commercial cases or portfolio of cases. We also have an established global network of experts that allows us to deliver solutions where other funders cannot.

Testimonials

“Clients and counsel want funders with established track records of funding cases through to completion; ample resources to handle the expense of litigation; the fortitude to weather the uncertainties that are an inevitable feature of litigation; the ability to make funding decisions without inordinate delay; and the ability to offer sound advice along the way, while still respecting the autonomy of the client and the ethical duties of the lawyer to his or her client.”
