Chambers Ranks Longford Capital Among Top Litigation Finance Firms

CHICAGO, June 28, 2019 - Chambers and Partners ranked Longford Capital in its 2019 Chambers Litigation Support Guide. This is the second consecutive annual recognition of Longford Capital by Chambers, which ranked Longford Capital among the best litigation finance firms in its inaugural ranking of the industry in 2018.

Chambers bases its judgments on factual information on each firm (total capital, fund structure, leading investors, quality of management, track record, and etc.), commentary from those who have worked with the firm, and the opinions of peers.

Chambers and Partners identified Michael Nicolas, co-founder and Managing Director of Longford Capital, as a top practitioner within the litigation finance industry, also for the second year running.

Michael is responsible for portfolio management, including underwriting, investment selection, and overseeing the efforts of independent attorneys and other professionals as part of the due diligence process. He is a former litigator and partner in the commercial litigation group of Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg, at which he represented companies involved in complex commercial legal disputes.

“It is rewarding to learn that many of our clients and peers rank us so highly among litigation finance firms, and that we’ve won the trust and respect necessary to be identified in Chambers’ survey,” said Michael. “Longford works with many of the top law firms in the country to provide a variety of funding options for portfolios and single-cases across several different industries and areas of the law. We work hard to deliver value to the law firms and clients we serve.”
