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”.

Roger Smith

A report from the Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation warns that law schools in the US are “in crisis” and doomed unless they must respond positively to the “disruption of the traditional model for the provision of legal services”. The report relishes the coming of Armageddon by a sector whose financial viability it says will soon be choked off by the transformation of the legal market. How does this thesis stack up from the other side of the Atlantic?
