Zachary Krug Joins Signal Capital, Helps Launch Lit Fin Arm

Zachary Krug has joined Signal Capital Partners, a London based special situations fund with over $2.5B AUM, where he will be leading a new strategy for litigation finance and legal assets.  Funding will be through SLF Capital Limited, a joint venture focused on legal assets.

Through SLF Capital, Signal provides capital to law firms, legal service providers and claimants in high value disputes on a global basis, as well as offering non-dilutive capital solutions to entities with legal assets or IP holdings. Signal also has strong relationships with traditional litigation funders and often serves as a partner to co-fund larger opportunities or to help litigation funders manage concentration risk within their own portfolios.  Signal provides flexible capital solutions to its counterparties, delivered transparently and efficiently through a streamlined investment decision-making framework.

Zachary notes that the draw of litigation finance is two-fold:  “As an asset class, litigation finance is attractive for its uncorrelated returns and can help claimants and corporate entities monetize and manage legal risk. But we also feel strongly that access to justice should not be dictated by financial resources and that litigation finance can play a pivotal role in vindicating legal rights.”

Zachary has nearly two decades of experience in international disputes and finance, and has been recognized as a Global 100 Leader in Litigation Finance. At Signal, Zachary works closely with claimants and lawyers, not only to provide much needed capital, but craft winning litigation strategies from pre-filing through enforcement.

Prior to joining Signal, Zachary was a Senior Investment Officer at Woodsford Litigation Funding in London, where he helped oversee the growth of its US and international disputes portfolio.  He was previously a trial litigator at the Los Angeles headquarters of the global disputes firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, where he focused on the trial of complex commercial disputes and international matters. He was also an associate at Shearman & Sterling in New York and clerked for the Honorable Shira A. Scheindlin in the Southern District of New York.

Zachary graduated from Yale University and Cornell Law School, and is an attorney admitted in New York and California.
