Longford Capital is a private investment company that invests in commercial litigation believed to be high value and meritorious. We provide capital to (i) companies to pay attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred in litigation and (ii) invest in portfolios of cases managed by leading law firms. If the litigation is successful, Longford Capital is paid back its investment plus an agreed upon return. If the litigation is unsuccessful, the client owes us nothing.
We manage a diversified portfolio of legal claims, and consider investments in business-to-business contract claims and other commercial claims, antitrust and trade regulation claims, intellectual property claims (including patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret), fiduciary duty claims, fraud claims, domestic and international arbitration, claims in bankruptcy and liquidation and a variety of others.
We invest in claims at all stages of the litigation life cycle, including during the initial dispute or pre-filing phase; before, during and after the completion of discovery and dispositive motions; through the pre-trial and trial process; and during appeal. We consider investments in a variety of industries and market sectors in numerous jurisdictions.
