Global litigation funder Omni Bridgeway has opened up an office in Washington, D.C.—its fifth in the U.S.—led by trial attorney Jason Levine, who most recently was a partner at Alston & Bird.

Levine, who will serve as investment manager and legal counsel at Omni Bridgeway, is coming on board amid high demand in the U.S. for the funder’s services, it said.
