LitCap has many advantages over traditional methods of attorney financing

LitCap is a system developed to give attorneys access to capital in order to fund litigation case costs. LitCap gives attorneys the flexibility to expand their business without capital constraints, and reduces the risk associated with litigation. LitCap offers many advantages over the traditional methods lawyers employ when financing case-related expenses.

Here are a few of the key attributes of the LitCap system:


Unlimited Access

As an active LitCap member, you will have unlimited access to capital to finance your clients' case-related expenses.

Non-Recourse

Like your contingent fee agreement, if you fail to make a recovery, you do not have to repay any of the principal you borrowed.

Private

Investors are not permitted to communicate with attorneys post-funding and do not participate as a partner.


Case-by-Case

Funds are allocated to the client's case from the outset, and the interest accrued is on the principal only, so it is easily segregated on a case-by-case basis and can ethically be passed through to the client.

Case-Related

Funding may be used only for case-related expenses. Once funded, all funds are transferred directly to the attorney's IOLTA* account.

Never Frivolous

Frivolous or meritless lawsuits are not considered by our investors.


Confidential

All information exchanged between the attorney and potential investors is non-privileged and kept strictly confidential.

Ethical

The LitCap system conforms to state ethics guidelines for the jurisdiction in which we serve.

Exclusive

Participation on the LitCap Marketplace is reserved for the most accomplished trial lawyers. Attorneys using LitCap have been thoroughly screened.

* Interest on “IOLTA” accounts is a method of raising money for charitable purposes, primarily the provision of civil legal services to indigent persons, through the use of interest earned on certain lawyer trust accounts.
