Woodsford Litigation Funding’s Singaporean beginning

Woodsford Litigation Funding appoints ex-Enyo Law associate as Asia managing director and opens an office in Singapore.

Corporate clients in Asia seeking to access litigation funding as a part of their dispute resolution financing options have a new source of advice to turn to, with last month’s announcement that third-party funder Woodsford Litigation Funding has opened an office in Singapore.

With the liberalisation of the litigation funding market now firmly underway, as discussed at CDR’s last Arbitration Symposium, at which Matthew Gearing QC of Allen & Overy gave the keynote address, the Lion City is no stranger to law firm investment, as well as that of rival funder Burford Capital which also opened there in October.
