Woodsford Litigation Funding are delighted to announce the appointment of Clare Owen.

Clare Owen, formerly at another well-known third party funder in Australia, joins Woodsford as a Consultant. She is an experienced litigation funding practitioner as well as a UK and Australian qualified solicitor. Woodsford sees Australia as an increasingly important market, particularly in the areas of class actions, commercial litigation and international arbitration.

Steven Friel, Woodsford’s CEO, commented:

“While a large part of our focus in recent times has been high growth jurisdictions such as the U.S. and Asia, we have maintained an interest in Australia, a mature jurisdiction for litigation funding. Having permanent presence in Australia, starting with Clare’s appointment, is a logical next step. We are extremely fortunate to have found somebody with her skills and experience.”
