Woodsford Litigation Funding Appointments New Executors For New Year

People Moves

 Woodsford Litigation Funding, the global provider of litigation financing solutions for businesses, individuals and law firms, has announced a series of senior and executive appointments as it accelerates its expansion goals for 2017.

Woodsford Litigation Funding has promoted Steven Friel to Chief Executive Officer from the post of Chief Investment Officer. Steven has extensive experience in handling complex international disputes. Having previously been partner at two major international law firms, he has represented clients across a broad range of commercial, industrial and governmental sectors – including finance, insurance and disputes involving complex technology. Steven’s role will be to drive the global business while continuing to oversee all investment activity.

Yves Bonavero moves from the role of CEO to chairman of Woodsford Litigation Funding and will remain an active member of the senior executive team.

Steven Savage joins as Head of Marketing and Business Development, and brings 20 years’ experience of B2B marketing, including time in a similar role at Burford Capital.

Today’s announcement builds on a number of recent appointments in 2016, including Charlie Morris from Enyo Law and Lara Bird from Hausfeld, both of whom joined Woodsford’s London-based investment team, and of Fidelma Macken SC to Woodsford’s non-executive Investment Advisory Panel. Fidelma is a retired judge of the Supreme Court of Ireland, and a former judge of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Woodsford Litigation Funding’s expansion comes at a time when litigation funding is increasingly becoming a part of the legal mainstream. Woodsfood’s CEO, Steven Friel, comments, “Litigation funding is on the increase around the world and we are pleased to offer a truly comprehensive, flexible and innovative portfolio of solutions for law firms, and their clients. The international expertise of our executive team and Investment Advisory Panel means we are ideally placed to provide financial solutions to the business of law anywhere in the world.”
