Longford Capital Closes Another Law Firm Portfolio Investment

CHICAGO, September 17, 2018 - Following closely behind the closing of a $67 million law firm portfolio investment, Longford Capital has executed an investment with another leading litigation law firm. The most recent portfolio investment calls for an initial capital commitment of $15 million and is expected to expand to more than $30 million over the next 36 months. The portfolio involves more than one dozen cases on behalf of multiple clients in different industries, asserting commercial claims and patent infringement claims with more than $750 million in alleged damages.

Portfolio investments enable leading law firms to spread risk and satisfy client demands. Leading law firms are approaching Longford Capital at an increasing rate to achieve these benefits.

“Longford Capital understands how to construct law firm portfolio investments and is among only a few firms that have sufficient capital and experience to select and invest in a portfolio of cases,” said William P. Farrell, Jr., Longford Capital Managing Director and General Counsel. “Longford Capital expects to make more investments with leading law firms in the fourth quarter, as those firms begin financial planning for year end.”
