Signal Capital launches strategy in litigation finance

London-based asset manager Signal Capital Partners has announced the hiring of new director Zachary Krug to lead its newly launched strategy in litigation finance and legal assets.

Krug’s focus will be to work with law firms, legal service providers and claimants in high-value disputes on a global basis, as well as offering non-dilutive capital solutions to entities with legal assets or IP holdings.

Prior to joining Signal, Krug was a Senior Investment Officer at Woodsford Litigation Funding in London, where he helped oversee the growth of its U.S. and international disputes portfolio. Before that, Krug was also a litigator at Quinn Emanuel in Los Angeles and Shearman & Sterling in New York and clerked for the Honorable Shira A. Scheindlin in the Southern District of New York.

Established in 2015, Signal Capital has historically managed funds focused on complex, special situations in European real estate and credit markets.
