For many law firms, it can be a point of pride to self-finance case disbursements rather than taking advantage of financing options. Self-funding case costs can put law firms at a disadvantage by hampering their liquidity and cash flow. This leaves them less flexibility to invest their hard-earned cash back into their business. Many firms erroneously believe they have to pass on the interest to their clients when they finance case costs.

It’s entirely up to the firm.
