Founder & Managing Director: Andrew Langhoff
Overview & History:
Red Bridges Advisors was founded to provide consulting and brokerage services to those seeking litigation finance. The results have vastly exceeded expectations. In little more than two years, Red Bridges has facilitated litigation finance transactions totaling more than $100 million.
The firm’s deals have encompassed the full range of litigation finance structures – the funding of cases and expenses, monetising claims, de-risking law firm portfolios, and accelerating legal fees. Similarly, the underlying legal matters were of a wide variety, including antitrust, international arbitration, intellectual property, patents, breach of contract, qui tam, terrorism, mass torts, and class actions.
Founder Andrew Langhoff works alone with the goal of providing superior service to his clients at every stage of the funding process. Given his near-decade in the industry, Langhoff has existing relationships with all the major funders, both in the U.S. and the U.K. He is aware of the important issues, as well as the land-mines – ethical and otherwise – that need to be avoided. And Langhoff’s extensive business and legal career – both in private practice and in-house – provide him with a genuine understanding of the concerns of the various stakeholders involved in the funding process.
Red Bridges Advisors offers three primary services:
The firm works side-by-side with clients who are actively seeking financing. Red Bridges’ efforts extend through every step of the funding process – from information gathering and funder selection through deal closing and initial financing.
The firm provides expert advice on issues related to litigation finance, including second opinions on deal pricing and related topics. Many such clients are exploring the advantages of litigation finance, without having identified a specific opportunity.
The firm dispels the mystery surrounding our industry. For many years Red Bridges has been presenting to law firms and other groups on the topic of litigation finance, and is happy to tailor a presentation to your organization.

Founder of a leading litigation boutique:
‘I can tell you without reservation that Andrew is the best in the business and worth every penny of his fee. He knows more about the litigation finance industry than anyone I know. He knows the top funders well – and knows how to close deals with them.’
Former Assistant U.S. attorney and litigation boutique partner:
‘Andrew has secured funding for us twice, and I would readily engage him again. He drives the entire litigation finance process – from the initial discussion of our needs to the final wire transfer to our bank account. He’s immediately responsive and entirely transparent and trustworthy.’
Partner of an AmLaw 100 firm:
‘Andrew fashioned an innovative deal structure for our financing. We’d previously struggled to obtain funding, and without Andrew’s creativity and determination, I don’t believe we would have been successful. It’s clear that Andrew made the difference.’
CEO of a technology company, working with an AmLaw 20 law firm:
‘Without Andrew our financing deal simply wouldn´t have been possible. We [senior management] are well aware of the ‘heart blood’ Andrew invested to get the deal done - despite the various challenging twists and turns. Thank you so much, Andrew’
Partner of a fast-growing MDL firm:
‘We relied upon Andrew to guide us through the entire funding process. He understood the deal structures, the pricing, and exactly which funders to approach. He had a clear concern for what was best for our firm, and he became a part of our senior team. We are already working with him on a second financing deal.’
Partner and CFO of a leading antitrust firm:
‘Our financing had a very tight time frame. Andrew ran the process from start to finish and came through at the price we wanted. Andrew saved us a lot of work, time and money. We fully intend to work with him on our next financing – and can’t think of a higher form of recommendation.’
