  • Burford Sued By Shareholders Over Stock Drop
August 22, 2019

A class of Burford Capital shareholders has sued the company for allegedly painting a “misleading picture” for investors, Law360 reports.

The lawsuit comes after the company lost nearly half its stock value following a report from short seller Muddy Waters, who said Burford “actively misleads investors” about its financies and accounting. The class alleges that Burford’s annual report statements were “materially false and/or misleading” and misrepresented the value of the litigation it funds.
