Woodsford Litigation Funding is delighted to have been included on The Leap 100 2016 – a list of the 100 most exciting, fast-growth companies in the UK, launched by Mishcon de Reya and City AM. All the companies selected have demonstrated substantial growth over the past 12 months and been identified as the ‘ones to watch’ for 2016.

Steven Friel, Chief Investment Officer at Woodsford Litigation Funding said:

“Woodsford Litigation Funding is a growing company in a growing industry. Our access-to-justice products are in high demand. We expect to make a number of additional key investments in high value litigation and arbitration over the course of the next year. And we will continue our successful recruitment process, which has resulted in key hires for the business in the past few months, with more to be announced shortly.”

The Leap 100 companies, which range in terms of scale and sector, were chosen because of their growth potential and ability to make the leap to the next level in terms of revenue. City AM and Mishcon de Reya teamed up with The Supper Club, The Entrepreneurs Network and Seven Hills to compile the list.

Nick Davis, Head of Corporate at Mishcon de Reya, said:

“This stage of a company’s growth can be very dramatic, with risks of serious setbacks and sudden lows, but with high rewards for those who make it to the other side. The Leap 100 campaign examines and celebrates the hurdles and opportunities that fast growing companies face. We launched The Leap 100 in 2015 to support a select group of some of the UK’s most exciting, high growth companies. This year’s list is yet again a dynamic group of companies to watch.”

Christian May, Editor of City AM, said of the list:

“The UK has a thriving SME community making up 99.9% of the private sector. However, for the majority of companies, the key problem continues to focus on how companies scale in order to grow to their full potential. The purpose of this list is to showcase the UK companies succeeding in doing this, as well as identifying those that we as a nation need to be aware of – they are a triumph.”
