Team in the UK
Stifel’s Legal Services Team is the largest investment banking team focussed exclusively on legal funding in Europe. Our team of professionals are dedicated solely to law firms and litigation finance and has advised on multiple transactions across the capital structure (debt and equity, private and public), across the investment banking product set (public equity, private equity, M&A, structured debt), and across the globe (U.S., UK, continental Europe).
We advised Gerchen Keller on its disposal to Burford (the largest M&A deal in the sector to date), led the IPO of DWF (the premium listed international legal business) onto the Main List of the London Stock Exchange, and have raised hundreds of millions of dollars via structured private credit transactions for litigation finance platforms, giving us an unrivalled understanding of private cost of capital.
