Burcher Jennings200Leading costs, pricing and funding expert Burcher Jennings is today launching Burcher Jennings Litigation Funding.

The new service provides law firms and their clients with tailored, expert advice, on a case by case basis, on the full range of funding options.

With Burcher Jennings Litigation Funding, firms ensure that their clients can make informed decisions about financing and obtain the right funding for their case.

The service ensures firms can be confident they are meeting their SRA compliance obligations, and that profitability is driven through the retention of clients that might otherwise look elsewhere to fund and complete their cases.

The new service sees Burcher Jennings working with top funding consultants, and marks an expansion of Burcher Jennings’ ‘full-service’ approach to increasing firms’ profitability. It is a natural extension of the popular Funding for Growth service, and results from clients expressing an interest in accessing similar funding streams for litigation.

Martyn Jennings, CEO, Burcher Jennings, said:

“The law firms we work with are under unprecedented pressure to maintain, let alone increase, profitability in the face of continuing dramatic changes to the legal system.

“Our years of experience in costs and pricing help firms deliver profitability by building client trust, confidence and satisfaction.”

“Hearing from solicitors about the increasing challenges their clients face in accessing justice where litigation is required, it was a natural step for us to launch an expert litigation funding service. There is a wide range of complex funding options on the market, and lawyers aren’t financial advisers.

“As with our established and complementary Funding for Growth service, we can help firms get it right, allowing them to increase business and focus on delivering great client care”.

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
