This article is excerpted from a letter by Mordechai Yavneh, managing member of Focus Capital Management, based in New York City.

Burford Capital (London: BUR, NYSE: BUR) is headquartered in London, and is dual-listed, trading in London on the AIM exchange and in New York on the NYSE. Burford is a litigation finance company, which in essence means that they fund lawsuits in exchange for a portion of the proceeds recovered. They exclusively finance high-end commercial disputes, whose legal fees often reach many millions of dollars, and they operate in a distinctly different segment from personal injury lawsuit or other consumer lawsuit financing, which have an entirely different market dynamic and regulatory environment.
