LLS is pleased to announce that Senior Litigation Manager, Lisa Brentnall will relocate to Queensland for a period of twelve months to work directly with lawyers, insolvency practitioners and clients who need litigation funding to commence or support their litigation claims through the Courts.

Ms Brentnall said “The opportunity to relocate to Queensland and invest time in developing relationships with key professionals was one that I jumped at. Queensland has provided a steady stream of opportunities over the years for LLS and it is clear there is demand for the type of tailored and personal service that LLS provides.

LLS has tripled in size over the last twelve months and its investment portfolio has grown over seven times larger in the last three years demonstrating the support from our clients for the way we operate.”

Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Price said “Lisa is the most experienced member of our team and she has worked across all aspects of litigation funding including class actions, commercial claims and insolvency related matters. This move demonstrates how important Queensland is to the future growth of LLS and this is a natural extension of our recent growth story.

The opportunity for Lisa is immense. Lisa already has a strong portfolio of Queensland matters and through these is well known to the market.”

LLS recognise many of its clients operate as national firms and LLS embraces this by operating seamlessly across State borders. Reflecting this philosophy, Ms Brentnall will continue to service her interstate clients in the same way as before with face-to-face contact whenever required.
