Financial solutions to support law firms' cash flow requirements

VFS Legal is a fresh thinking funder with an innovative approach to working with the legal sector. Our products are unique, regulatory compliant, and designed to help a law firm improve their cash flow.

We do not seek to provide a replacement for your bank facilities but rather a complementary solution that delivers the cash flow funding that is required to develop a law firm.

Our Products

Disbursement Funding - VFS can fund your external costs.

Repaid at natural conclusion of the case

We fund the law firm, not the claimant, giving you free choice of providers

Costs Funding - Release your WIP tied up in a case

Low monthly interest-only payments

Repayment upon receipt of settlement increases law firm's financial "muscle"

What can VFS do for you?

We can fund your disbursements or release the cash tied up in cases where there is an admission of liability or judgement – including multi-defendant cases. A low interest rate, payable monthly, with the capital being repaid once the bill has actually settled, is an extremely cost effective method of releasing cash.

This can enable you to maintain excellent supplier relationships or give you the financial muscle to negotiate the correct settlement level without the need to reach a quick, inappropriate agreement which undervalues your WIP. All funds released by VFS are the law firm’s to use as they require and our unique products give you the cash flow to drive your business and increase your profitability.

Roberts Jackson has historically worked with Norman & the team at VFS. Norman is all about business relationships & is at the heart of the business & we have found him, his team & the products that we have utilised to be excellent. If you are looking for a funder they are definitely worth a look & he is always happy to have a chat about what they can do. Personally I found them to be flexible & willing to fit the product to our needs as well as putting compliance at the forefront.
