NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 5, 2018--Lake Whillans Litigation Finance LLC has been recognized as one of the top four litigation funders in the U.S. by Chambers and Partners in its first-ever ranking of litigation funding firms.

Praise was given to Lake Whillans’ “approach to funding and the engaged nature of its principals,” with commenters adding that "their input during litigation is both appropriate and appreciated. They understand what the rhythm of a trial is like and have good ideas as to how a case might develop, but are not at all intrusive."

Chambers also recognized Lake Whillans’ principal, Boaz Weinstein, individually as one of the top professionals in the litigation finance industry. Weinstein was described as “a very talented, terrific lawyer who is a pleasure to work with," who "understands the funding market - he's interested in it and is always thinking about what's around the corner."

“The first-ever ranking by Chambers of litigation funders in the U.S. represents a significant milestone recognizing the importance of litigation funding to the U.S. legal market,” said Marla Decker, a Managing Director at Lake Whillans. “We are pleased to be recognized as one of the top funders in the U.S., and look forward to continuing to be a trusted partner for companies and law firms for years to come.”
