Personal Injury law firms are acutely aware of the substantial capital required to cover their clients’ case expenses. Whether it involves expenses for medical records, expert witnesses, life care planners, mediations, depositions, or the costly testing associated with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), law firms have traditionally found themselves without alternative options to finance these necessary expenditures. The unspoken reality is the multitude of challenges many law firms encounter when tasked with covering expenses—not just for one case but for 50, 100, or even 150 cases simultaneously.
Unless a law firm boasts a significant financial reserve, a circumstance most firms don’t enjoy, facing cash flow issues is a common plight for contingency lawyers. Monthly settlements may be insufficient to cover bills or allow for a reasonable salary, presenting a consistent challenge for Personal Injury lawyers, irrespective of their years in practice. With the persistent pressure to maintain advertising efforts, rising advertising costs, and the overall increasing expenses associated with running a business, covering case expenses for numerous cases becomes a daunting task for law firms.
For decades, law firms have been presented with limited options—relying on their operating account or securing a bank line of credit. While each has its place, scrutinizing these business models reveals their somewhat draconian nature. Now, consider this: what if there was a superior option for your law firm beyond the confines of an operating account or a line of credit? One that carries no risk, even if the case is lost or the client decides to part ways. Perhaps an option that liberates your funds, allowing you to utilize your line of credit for marketing initiatives instead of tying it up in case expenses? Or maybe the freedom to refrain from tapping into your operating account, enabling your money to be strategically invested in cases for operational purposes or to boost your marketing budget.
There are indeed better options that make practical sense and are readily available.
