Litigation Through a Contingency Law Firm
When your small- or medium-sized business has been substantially harmed by another business, often larger and more influential, you need a lawyer that can get results. Unfortunately, the best attorneys often don’t come cheap, potentially charging millions of dollars in fees.
Luckily, business owners who need top-tier representation but can’t afford to shell out that kind of money have options. The most common ways to fund commercial litigation when a business owner is on a budget is via a litigation funding company (LFC) or a contingency law firm. LFCs are the middlemen that connect clients and attorneys, taking their share in fees in exchange for covering the upfront costs of retaining representation. Contingency law firms cut out the middleman by offering representation for clients and only accepting payment if they win the case.
In most cases, hiring a contingency law firm is the right course of action.
Only Pay If You Win
On the surface, LFCs often claim they operate on “non-recourse funding” – clients owe nothing if the case is lost. However, the fine print in their contracts usually outline several circumstances in which this claim is null and void and a client would be required to repay the company as if the funding were a loan. This questionable payment plan is often not disclosed until it’s too late.
Conversely, contingency lawyers are simple and straightforward. You only pay the lawyer a percentage from what is recovered in the lawsuit. No fine print or extenuating circumstances.

We Work Harder and Faster for Our Clients
LFCs approach litigation lending like banks approach loans. Clients are caught in the cogs of bureaucracy and are expected to complete weeks or months of legal paperwork and formal requests that slow the process. Contingency law firms offer a much more streamlined decision-making process. Before taking the case, these firms perform a thorough fact-checking and discovery phase to ensure they can assist the client. Afterward, the client meets with a select few key decision-makers throughout the entire case. With no bureaucratic delays, the legal matter can proceed smoothly.
LFCs owe their primary duty to their investors and not the client. This can cause significant misalignment of interest and conflict when settlement talks begin. As long as there is sufficient money being offered to pay back the investors, the LFC’s interest is in settlement and not in receiving fair compensation for the client. Meanwhile, contingency law firms have a fiduciary duty to do what is in the best interests of the client. Because the firm receives a percentage of the verdict or settlement, it also benefits the attorney to ensure the client recovers as much as possible. In the end, the client and contingency law firm are working toward the same goal – justice for the client.
