Legalist provides litigation financing for litigation expenses, attorney’s fees, and settlement advances.

Legalist provides funding for litigation costs, attorney’s fees, and advances on settlements. Whether you are looking for expert witness costs or an advance on money already awarded in a judgment, Legalist helps bridge the gap.

By connecting Legalist to Clio, you can select your Matters for financing. Financing approval will then take about two weeks. Upon approval for litigation financing, you can receive up to $500,000 that will be wired to you within a week. 

Legalist funding is non-recourse, meaning you pay nothing if you lose your case; and all applications are free.
