Burford Capital saw its profits dip for the second straight year in 2020, according to the litigation funding giant’s latest financial report, while leadership emphasized that the company’s existing portfolio had its best year ever. Meanwhile, more corporations are turning directly to the company for funding arrangements, leadership said.
