I read that Brilliant Law ‘is founded by non-lawyers, which is a radically different scenario to other law firms'.

It is indeed. I read on: ‘That brings with it innovation and a commercial appreciation but also mechanisms to market ourselves differently.’

But wait – they are funded by a bookie. Perhaps their clients can bet on the outcome of their case and they will hedge as necessary. Welcome again to the Brave New World.
