Omni Bridgeway Backs Japanese Legal Business

Posted on 07/17/2020


Litigation funding giant Omni Bridgeway Limited disclosed a new legal finance facility and an equity investment in a Japanese business called Japan Legal Network Co., Ltd (Japan Legal Network).

Japan Legal Network was formed in April 2015 by Yasufumi Minamitani and Nobuhisa Hayano. Yasufumi Minamitani, Representative Director and one of the founders of Japan Legal Network (previously an Attorney at leading Japanese law firm Nishimura Asahi and a business consultant at Boston Consulting Group), in a press release said, “Japanese claimants have traditionally not had an avenue to progress their legal rights while outsourcing the costs and risks to a finance institution at the same time. Japan Legal Network is the first service of this kind in Japan and provides clients with the capital and expertise to pursue their rights.”
