Case Cost Lines of Credit for the Legal Industry

In this blog, we feature insights into why case cost lines of credit are essential for contingency fee law firms.

Succeed boldly – finance case costs to free up your capital for growth.

What is a Case Cost Line of Credit?

It is a truly unique credit facility for contingency fee law firms that relieves law firms from the pressure of out-of-pocket payments for case costs like expert witnesses, deposition transcripts or innovative 3D accident reconstruction technology. At settlement time, most of our law firm clients recoup these costs – and the interest – from their client’s share of the settlements.
