Several common themes run through all our investments:

  • All have been through our rigorous, in-house underwriting process. Be it an ESG-focused collective engagement we have developed internally, a commercial or IP claim brought to us by a law firm or even a law-firm finance facility, we only invest in a small number of the opportunities we review. Our executive team of world-class legal, financial and commercial professionals first needs to be convinced – then, in turn they need to convince both our Investment Advisory Panel (IAP), made up of senior figures from the world of litigation, and the Woodsford board before we invest.
  • We only work with the world’s leading lawyers and law firms who have a track-record of winning the kinds of cases we are partnering with them on.
  • Whether they are a global asset-manager with $£Bns AUM or a small individual patent-holder looking to protect their IP, we work with claimants who are reasonable and realistic.
  • We have a great deal of in-house expertise and experience, and we find that claimants and other stakeholders appreciate our professional input as much as our financial investment.
  • When we structure any investment, we ensure that the finance is in place to see it to its conclusion, even if the claim does not settle before trial.
  • Our involvement often shifts the settlement dynamic in favor of the claimant. Knowing their adversary is fully resourced by an independent, dispassionate third-party that is very selective about the claims it invests in, sends a clear and powerful message to any defendant.
  • We structure our investments in a way that all stakeholders are pulling in the same direction, with risks and rewards aligned.
  • Throughout the entire process, we are clear, transparent, honest, and realistic.
