International Legal Finance Association Adds Contingency Capital as 20th Member

By John Freund |

The International Legal Finance Association (ILFA), the only global association of commercial legal finance companies, today announced that Contingency Capital has joined the organization as its 20th member. 

“As the only global association representing the commercial legal finance industry, ILFA is excited to welcome Contingency Capital as the organization’s 20th member,” said Gary Barnett, ILFA’s Executive Director. “The addition of Contingency Capital serves as a landmark moment for the growth of ILFA as an organization, as well as the commercial legal finance industry at-large.” 

“Contingency Capital’s investment strategy leverages our litigation expertise to build diversified pools of legal assets,” said Brandon Baer, Founder and Chief Investment Officer at Contingency Capital. “As the asset class attracts increased interest from institutional investors, we look forward to working alongside our fellow members to build a broader understanding of the legal finance industry,” said Baer. 

Since ILFA’s inception in 2020, the association has grown from six to 20 members, representing the world’s leading providers of commercial legal finance. During this time, ILFA has established itself as the undisputed global voice of the legal finance industry, by lending its voice to major legislative and regulatory debates in a variety of jurisdictions and relevant bodies, including in Europe, Australia, the U.S. and international arbitration institutions. Further, the association hosted its inaugural International Legal Finance Conference at the historic Morgan Library in New York City, with plans to hold additional events throughout the world this year.
