Burford Capital’s office in New York.

The world’s biggest litigation funder is making a bet that there is still a lot of room to grow.

Burford Capital Ltd. is set to announce Monday its hire of two well-known legal entrepreneurs, David Perla and Greg McPolin, who have founded or jump-started growth at a series of young legal businesses. Perla is perhaps best-known for co-founding legal process outsourcing firm Pangea3 LLC, where McPolin was also an executive. Business information giant Thomson Reuters Corp. acquired Pangea3 in late 2010.

At Burford, the duo will serve as managing directors tasked with leading the litigation financier’s business development efforts. Perla will oversee global bids by Burford to originate deals, while McPolin will be focused domestically. The pair said they will look to expand Burford’s financing into both law firms and corporate legal departments.
