The legal industry is extremely competitive, and not all business owners have enough cash to make investments.

What types of loan options are available for law firms?

Many legal professionals use personal cash to invest in their firms, but that's not always a good idea. Fortunately, there are many financial products you can access, like:
  • Small business loans
  • Lines of credit
  • Cash advance loans
  • Traditional bank loans
  • Merchant cash advances

Are there fees associated with law firm financing options?

Business lenders charge origination, underwriting, and closing fees. Some may even charge prepayment fees too. At Camino Financial we’re transparent with our fees: there are no hidden costs. Plus, if you want to pay off your loan early, we won’t charge any prepayment penalties.

How to choose the right type of loan for my law firm?

To choose the right commercial lending product, you need to consider factors like:
  • If the amount your lender  offers matches your needs
  • If you meet your small business lender's minimum requirements
  • How high the interest rates and fees are

How can you fund a new law firm?

Some new business owners in the legal industry use credit cards and invoice factoring when starting. These choices can lead to a debt cycle, making it hard for the firm to make money. The best option is to get a law firm startup loan.

How does a law firm generate revenue?

Lawyers typically set hourly rates and bill their clients for their services. However, some work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they don’t receive their paychecks until after a client wins damages in court.
