Australia’s Premier Funders

We help you and your clients to stay focused on doing the work that matters.

Financing Tailored To Your Needs

We deliver tailored legal funding solutions to help your law firm grow, transform and prosper.

For effective financial management firms need to consider many things, but two of the main items are overheads and cashflow. Law firms face the challenge of needing to provide a service to clients (and all the expenses that come with running a practice) prior to realising any income. Cashflow budgets can help identify periods where expected revenue is insufficient to cover regular payments. This also goes hand in hand with knowing your lock up period – look at the sum of your WIP and debtors and this will reveal how long your capital is locked up for.

Despite having a good bank of files and work in progress (WIP), there can be times when reserves are stretched. While banks will not always extend credit against WIP, we understand the strength of your business and provide funding tailored to your needs.

Outsourcing disbursement funding can free up your cash flow, reducing pressure on your general account as well as reducing interest and finance costs associated with overdrafts and traditional bank lending.

Our pre-settlement funding can also be offered to your clients, providing much needed cash at a difficult time.

Our clients are solicitors, financial controllers and practice directors.

At Providior, we understand that law firms have a unique set of requirements that informs what outlays will be funded by claimants and how the financing costs are also borne by those claimants. We’ve provided law firms with working capital, processed thousands of transactions on their behalf and paid hundreds of suppliers. Understanding that you need to keep reports coming in and claims moving, we offer same-day processing of your invoices, access to transparent reporting and practical reporting tools.

What Is Legal Funding and Litigation Funding?

There are many terms used around finance for law firms and lega cases. Litigation funding is the most common term but there are marked differences between it and some of the other financial tools available. Legal Funding (sometimes known as Litigation Funding) is a mechanism or process that allows law firms to finance their litigation or other legal costs through a third party funding company. The funder is paid on case completion in the event of a successful trial.

Companies such as Providior contribute to litigation funding by funding the specific disbursements that can weigh on cash flow. Disbursement funding can also be provided in isolation from litigation funding. Whilst plaintiffs are more likely to use legal financing, defendants are more likely to use legal defence funds. Money obtained from legal financing firms can be used for any purpose, including litigation or personal matters. On the other hand, money obtained through legal defence funds is solely used to fund litigation and legal costs. Providior’s role within this system is funding disbursements such as medical reports, court fees and even claimant travel primarily for personal injury law firms on a non-contingent basis.

Litigation funders give litigants a nonrecourse cash advance for a percentage of the judgment or settlement. Legal financing is not the same as a loan despite some superficial similarities to an unsecured loan from a traditional lender. Litigation Funding is typically regarded as an asset purchase or venture capital rather than a loan. Legal funding advances are not debt and are not reported to credit bureau, so obtaining a legal funding advance will not affect a litigant’s credit ratings.
