Disbursement & Aged Debt Funding For Legal Practices

Legal disbursements make up a major part of legal firm charges and can cause a significant strain on practice cash flow. Mounting costs paid out on behalf of a client, whether for goods or services provided to the client, or on the client’s behalf may restrict your growth. Financing Disbursements can help you to build on supplier relationships and provide the financial headroom to ensure you can negotiate the right settlement for the client and practice.
