100 Leading Legal Consultants and Strategists for 2019

We are in the age of litigation finance, should you have any doubt. Want proof? Burford, the $5B legal finance juggernaut, now works with 90 percent of the Global 100 law firms. With that kind of impact, it’s not surprising that it’s represented by eight of its stars on our fourth annual guide to the 100 Leading Legal Consultants and Strategists. Key to that representation, as well, is the firm’s groundbreaking Gender Equity project, earmarking investment for litigation headed by women. And that’s another important facet of this year’s guide, which is 41 percent women. However, broader diversity remains a challenge – law firms and  their advisors struggle for inclusiveness, a persistent problem for the industry.

This year’s guide is, as always, chock full with the most brilliant crisis communicators, marketing mavens, management advisors and recruiters in the world. And, it’s worth noting the major shakeup underway in the recruiting world, where Jane Sullivan Roberts switched her practice from the historic Major Lindsey & Africa to the up and coming MLegal. Missing from this year’s guide are the technology and litigation consultants who are becoming increasingly critical to law practice each year. They are getting their own guides in the future.
