Australian litigation finance company Litigation Capital Management (LCM) has become the latest third-party funder to open an office in Singapore after hiring Roger Milburn as an investment manager from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner. 

LCM’s opening comes some two years after Singapore passed two-bills clearing the way for third party funding in disputes. IMF Bentham was the first funder to arrive, opening an office in March 2017 followed by New York-headquartered Burford Capital and the UK’s Woodsford Litigation Funding.

Milburn, who was with BCLP and the legacy Berwin Leighton Paisner for more than 12 years, has significant experience in the Asia-Pacific arbitration space. At LCM, he will be looking after the offerings in both Singapore and Hong Kong.
