Law Firm Financing

Monetize your firm’s anticipated fee income to smooth cash flows, mitigate risk, extend alternative fee arrangements to clients and generate new business.

With portfolio financing from Omni Bridgeway, your firm can take cases on contingency and use them as revenue generating assets even as you litigate them. 


The financing is secured by the firm’s potential fee income in three or more of the cases. It serves to cover a portion of the fee budgets in the cases, essentially converting the “full” contingency fee matters into “hybrid” matters in which the firm earns a portion of the amounts it would earn from the cases if it were handling them on an hourly fee basis.

Since our financing is non-recourse, firms retain the funded amounts even if the portfolio cases ultimately are unsuccessful. When contingency fees are collected from one or more of the cases, firms pay a return to Omni Bridgeway, with the amount depending on the terms of the financing agreement.  

This approach allows firms to avail themselves of opportunities to earn more than they would earn in hourly-fee matters while lessening the risk of taking cases on contingency.
