Lawsuit Advances

A cash advance solution for plaintiffs and attorneys.

A lawsuit advance is a non-recourse loan that uses expected lawsuit settlements as collateral. These advances are available to plaintiffs and attorneys to successfully battle the defendant and pay immediate costs while a case reaches a successful conclusion. Baker Street Legal Funding provides cash fast advances on settlement proceeds and trial awards to claimants and attorneys who need the funds quickly. Lawsuit loan amounts range between $1,500 to $20,000,000+.

If you are an attorney looking to pay for high litigation costs or a plaintiff who needs to pay bills, then you understand that without the cash flow to pursue wealthy corporate defendants, you could end up settling for less than your case’s fair value.

The real conundrum is that these defendants are aware that long drawn-out legal battles can drain plaintiffs financially until they either accept a low settlement offer or drop the case altogether.

Ironically, traditional lending institutions and banks do not see potential cash payments of settlements and verdict awards as assets, and they are not able to provide long-term financing to bring a dispute to its proper conclusion due to the high risks of litigation.

This leaves a void for those inadequately capitalized funds to dabble into legal funding where attorneys and plaintiffs can secure financing to assist them in seeing a case through.

To put it in perspective, litigation and pre-settlement funding companies exist to provide both claimants and attorneys with the needed financial resources by investing capital into civil proceedings. This works by purchasing a portion of your prospective settlement (or jury award) on a non-recourse basis in exchange for the advance.


What is a lawsuit cash advance anyway?

A lawsuit cash advance is exactly what it says it is, a cash advance of a portion you expect to receive from your potential settlement or judgment proceeds. Although lawsuit advances are typically called lawsuit loans, they are not real loans in the traditional sense. They are considered a specialty non-recourse funding product since they provide plaintiffs involved in personal injury litigation and attorneys alike with cash in advance of a legal case resolving in or out of court. A lawsuit cash advance is also known as pre-settlement funding and comes with no risks. Once you borrow a set amount of money, you won’t have to pay it off until your claim reaches a settlement or until you receive a monetary award for your damages. Lawsuit cash advances are a great financing tool for settling a case successfully or winning fair compensation while you take care of your financial needs.
