Law Firm Finance
We enable law firms to expand their business, manage risk and maintain cash flow.
An increasing number of law firms are seeking finance solutions to help drive business development and growth, and to allow them to move more quickly to support clients.
Woodsford has an in-depth understanding of the financing of law firms, particularly those with a substantial amount of claimant litigation and arbitration work. We work with leading law firms to deliver a range of funding options that enable effective cash flow management, as well as managing and mitigating risk.
Finance solutions don’t have to be about funding specific litigation or arbitration cases. They can also act as a strategic business investment, providing a means of expansion that minimises risk and cost. More than this, finance secured against a portfolio of cases can also help law firms remain competitive and flexible – and critically to differentiate themselves in an increasingly discount-driven industry.
Specialised law funding
Specialised law firm financing solutions are a more strategic and usually a more appropriate investment option than traditional bank loans or partner funding. With banks’ lack of understanding of the business of law generally and litigation risk specifically, appropriate finance can be difficult to obtain.
Woodsford’s range of law firm financing options provide a highly structured, partnership approach to funding that can drive higher returns and significantly reduce risk for law firms around the world.
Why choose Woodsford?
Our proven in-house expertise and experience ensures our senior team members can advise on, and deliver, flexible funding solutions secured against a portfolio of cases. As a result, firms are better positioned to seek additional growth opportunities as a result of increased capital and reduced risk.
We can offer lending facilities to firms which may be linked to the firm’s contingent or conditional returns on a given case, or portfolio of cases. We can accelerate receipt of fees, providing capital that firms can immediately recognise as revenue and utilise for any purpose.
We work with leading law firms to deliver tailored Law Firm Finance solutions.
Lending facilities may be granted for emergency support or as working capital.
Litigation Funding as Corporate Finance
Litigation is expensive, unpredictable and risky. While for many claimants it may be the only way to unlock a disputed asset or claim, the risks involved often mean businesses do not proceed with an action – even those that do have the necessary resources.
We provide a range of litigation funding solutions to support your pursuit of justice at every stage of your case. We can bear as much of the cost and risk as you need to allow your action to go-ahead.
As the costs and risks of international arbitration grow, our hugely experienced team can provide you with the right financial solution to support any type of case across many jurisdictions around the world.
