VFS Legal

VFS Legal Funding provides cost effective, modern and proven funding directly to the law firm. 

 

A strong cash flow and financial stability gives the law firm the upper hand in bill negotiations, increasing the profitability on the case by removing the need to accept low settlement offers. 

 

In the 8 years we have been active, VFS have provided in excess of £120m across 60 law firms releasing the monies locked up in the draft bills; disbursements; court fees and WIP.

 

We pride ourselves not only on our proven track record of delivering a quality service but being able to maintain close working relationships with our clients, tailoring our products to their specific needs and being cost effective – meaning low interest-only payments. We are very proud to say once a firm uses our facility, they continue to do so going forwards as it gives them the freedom to achieve their goals.

 

To summarise, VFS enables the law firm to release the cash tied up in external disbursements incurred or release the WIP that’s tied up in a case where there is an admission of liability. 

Feel free to give us a call to discuss ways on how to improve your firms cashflow.
