Woodsford announces further expansion

Woodsford today announced further expansion with the appointment of Brendan Dyer as Vice President, Business Development in New York and Conn MacEvilly as Senior Investment Officer in London. These are key appointments to our global executive team.

Brendan Dyer joins from Goodwin Procter, where he led the firm’s strategic pricing initiatives for both the IP Litigation and Complex Litigation and Dispute Resolution practices. Brendan has a breadth of experience in legal pricing and project management across multiple Am Law 50 firms.

Conn MacEvilly joins from his previous role as Chief of Staff of the United Kingdom Government’s COVID-19 Task Force. Formerly a barrister specialising in commercial litigation and Head of Legal Services at PWC Gibraltar, Conn’s organisational acumen and legal expertise will be invaluable as Woodsford’s global business continues its rapid growth.

“From our foundation as a third party funder that helps level the playing field in David v Goliath litigation, Woodsford has grown into a successful ESG business, holding major corporates to account when wrongdoing occurs. Whether it is helping consumers achieve collective redress, ensuring that inventors are properly compensated when Big Tech infringes intellectual property rights, or helping shareholders in escalated engagement with listed companies, our team is committed to access to justice. These two exceptional appointments will help support continued growth in our key international markets.” said Steven Friel, Woodsford’s CEO
