LONDON 14 October 2019, Woodsford Litigation Funding, the global provider of litigation financing solutions for businesses, individuals and law firms, has announced further expansion of its international executive team with the appointment of Adam Erusalimsky to the position of Senior Investment Officer, Alex Hickson as Investment Officer and Daniel Littman as Commercial Manager. All three will be based at Woodsford’s London HQ.

Adam, a seasoned litigator who joins Woodsford from Stewarts and Alex, who joins from Slater & Gordon, will be part the underwriting team led by Charlie Morris, focusing on cases in the UK and EMEA, including class and group actions, IP claims and general commercial disputes. Daniel will join the commercial team led by Woodsford’s Commercial and Finance Director, Mark Spiteri. Daniel will focus on structuring and negotiating litigation funding and law firm finance deals globally.

These appointments are a graphic illustration of the rapidly increasing deal flow at Woodsford. And the recruitment push in new (Canada) and existing (Singapore) markets illustrates how the business is not resting on its laurels.

“Our business continues to grow and succeed because we have a winning combination of high quality capital and high quality professionals. Particularly following last year’s injection of significant further capital by our shareholders, Adam, Alex and Daniel complete the ingredients for a successful litigation finance business” said Steven Friel, Woodsford’s CEO.

Woodsford’s new Senior Investment Officer, Adam Erusalimsky commented, “It’s tremendously exciting to be joining one of the world’s leading litigation funders at a time when it is growing so quickly. I am really looking forward to playing my part in taking Woodsford to the next level.”
