Lawsuit Financing Companies

Attorneys, law firms, lawyers, beneficiaries or clients usually form lawsuit-financing companies. Lawsuit financing companies can also provide appeal finance, firm finance, custom finance or estate finance.

Many lawyers and attorneys create lawsuit financing companies based on their experience and the types of cases they encounter the most. Attorneys and lawyers with expertise in personal injury lawsuits or patent lawsuits help by providing cash advances and support in their fields.

Lawsuit financing companies provide many financing options. With a significant monthly fee, a few lawsuit financing companies may help to settle the case faster. Though a large variety of options are available, the plaintiff has to discuss with the attorney which option is best suited to him.

The lawsuit financing company and the plaintiff can make an agreement of the amount of share the lawsuit financers would obtain after the settlement or the verdict is known. This is called “flat fee”. Apart from the flat fees, the plaintiff has to pay a minimum fee every month, called “recurring fees”, to the lawsuit financing company. This recurring fee can be as low as 2.9% in the case of a few lawsuit financing companies, or could be as high as 15% with other companies.

It is the financing company’s decision as to how much to pay as the cash advance. Lawsuit financing companies pay from $1000 to about a million dollars depending on the case.

Every lawsuit financing company would have a team of lawyers to assess the strength of the case. The key is to avoid funding frivolous complaints. Thus the financing companies will scrutinize the complaint and decide the chances of success of the case.

Lawsuit financing companies do not term their cash advances as loans but as investments. The applicant has to repay after the verdict. Usually the monetary settlement that is obtained after the settlement by the court is larger than the company’s advance. The lawsuit financing company should be paid the principal and the predetermined share of the monetary verdict.

Increasing Credit Union Revenue by Increasing Member Awareness of Investments and Insurance Sales

“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” — Peter Drucker

Peter Drucker, the management guru, passed away in 2005. With his passing we lost a unique individual who made a significant impact on not just the American business landscape because the impact of his knowledge of business management was felt worldwide. He was known as the “Uber Mentor”

Drucker was not a big fan of planning for planning sake. He counseled his clients to get busy and implement the plan as the lead quote above indicates. He was also an advocate for learning from mistakes. He used to tell even the largest corporate titan, “What makes you think you’re exempt from the normal bumps and bruises of life? The question isn’t, do you make mistakes? It’s, do you learn from them?”

As we approach the second half of 2009 our focus will gradually shift to looking at next year and the upcoming planning process associated with 2010. We are working hard to make 2009 a successful year but simultaneously learning from the mistakes and successes of 2009 so we can finish this year in a strong fashion while laying the groundwork for a successful 2010. I am going to focus on a key strategic concept that I believe will play a big role in the growth of our credit union partners in 2009 and beyond. This concept concerns the credit union membership participation in the investment services program.


One of my favorite Peter Drucker quotes is as follows, “Innovation requires us to systematically identify changes that have already occurred in a business — in demographics, in values, in technology or sciences – and then to look at them as opportunities. It also requires something that is most difficult for existing companies to do: abandon rather than defend yesterday.”

One such opportunity involves looking at how we can expand the awareness of the investment and insurance sales programs (program) within our credit unions and thereby help more of our members achieve their financial dreams. Let’s look at the membership penetration opportunity.

According to the 2007 Callahan & Associates Credit Union Retail Investment Program Benchmarking Report the average financial consultant gross commission (GDC) was $268,296. The aggregate GDC per million dollars of share deposits was $888.00. The average number of accounts per financial advisor was 760. So from an industry perspective we could use such data to gauge our progress and to forecast our expectations for next year. The danger of course is that while benchmarking data is useful an aggregate approach takes into account programs that do not look like yours and therefore tends to skew the results toward those higher performing programs. So at face value you may determine that you are either above or below the credit union averages. At least it’s a good place to start. In addition we should factor in economic data into this “top down approach”. We need to have an opinion of how the economy will impact our members’ ability to achieve their financial goals. In addition your broker dealer should factor in how the

4 Reasons Why Small Businesses Succeed (or Fail)

Thе American system οf business management іѕ admired аnd emulated around thе world. Thе American system іѕ characteristic οf two positive traits іn thе American psyche: (1) enthusiasm fοr mаkіng things better fοr thе future аnd (2) openness аnd willingness tο change іn order tο achieve thаt еnd.

Nο society іn thе world іѕ more prolific аt сrеаtіng nеw businesses thаn thе United States capitalistic system. Oftеn, hοwеνеr, аѕ small businesses owners аnd managers, wе аrе ѕο busy starting nеw ventures аnd fighting daily fires thаt wе don’t take thе time tο learn basic, successful management principles. Thеѕе principles hаνе bееn tested аnd proven bу ουr lаrgеr companies over years οf trial аnd error. Thеу аrе readily available аѕ a resource tο thе small business owner.


Many entrepreneurs аrе technical experts іn thе product οr service thеу offer. Thе entrepreneur, hοwеνеr, οftеn ѕtаrtѕ a business without аnу formal training οr experience іn thе best management practices аnd principles. Bу “management” here wе mean thе business οf successfully managing thе non-technical side οf thе business, thе “back room” activities. It іѕ thе “business οf running thе business”. Aѕ a result οf inadequate οr inattentive management, many small businesses fail іn thе early years. Thеу fail nοt bесаυѕе οf a weakness іn thеіr product οr service concept, bυt bесаυѕе thе business wаѕ nοt properly organized οr managed.

Once a small business hаѕ emerged frοm thе ѕtаrt-up phase, οr grown tο a сеrtаіn level, management techniques mυѕt change οr thе business wіll inevitably rυn іntο trουblе. Although situations vary widely, fοr many small businesses management crises ѕtаrt іn thе range οf $1-3 million іn annual sales οr 5-15 employees. Whеn management issue becomes critical, thе owner οr manager οf a small business mυѕt evolve οr change frοm a manager οf things tο a manager οf people аnd frοm a technical expert tο a strategic thinker.

Change іѕ never easy, particularly fοr talented entrepreneurs whο hаνе ingrained habits developed over time. Bυt failure tο grow аѕ a manager іѕ a major, perhaps thе major reason whу a business wіll falter, stagnate οr even collapse under іtѕ οwn weight.

Bυt whаt hаνе successful business owners developed hаνе іѕ missing іn troubled businesses?

First οf аll, owners οf successful businesses hаνе developed personal characteristics thаt thеу wеrе nοt necessarily born wіth аnd thаt reflect іn thеіr business organization:

The Different Shades of a Personal Loan

Personal Loans are loans that are easily available and help you fulfill a number of needs. Personal loans are not taken out for a specific purpose. You may take out a personal loan to fulfill all your big and small needs. You may avail a personal loan to consolidate your debt. A cheap personal loan can be used to pay high rate credit card dues. Moreover, you will need to repay the loan to just one lender.

A personal loan may also be used to improve your credit score. If you have a bad credit history, take out a Bad Credit Personal Loan and repay the loan as per the loan terms. This will help you improve your credit score. This article explains various types of personal loans. Personal loans are broadly classified as secured and Unsecured Loans.

Secured Personal Loans

Secured personal loans require collateral and carry low rates of interest. Secured personal loans offer flexible repayment terms. The amount of monthly payments is small in case of secured personal loans.

Unsecured Personal Loans

There is no need to offer your property as a security in case of an unsecured personal loan. The rates of interest on unsecured personal loans are higher than the rates on secured personal loans.

Based on the rate of interest, personal loans can be classified as fixed rate personal loans and adjustable rate personal loans.

Fixed Rate Personal Loans

In case of fixed rate personal loans, the rate of interest and the amount of monthly payments remain the same throughout the loan period.

Adjustable Rate Personal Loans

The rate of interest on an adjustable rate personal loan keeps on changing as the average rate prevalent in the market changes. Consequently, the amount of monthly payments also fluctuates throughout the loan period.

Based on the mode of repayment, there are three types of personal loans – installment loan, balloon loan and single payment loan.

Installment Loans

In case of this type of personal loan, the loan amount, along with its interest, is repaid in the form of monthly installments until the loan period expires.

Balloon Loans

Only the interest is paid at regular intervals and the entire principal amount is repaid at the end of the loan period.

Single Payment Loans

The entire principal amount as well as its interest is repaid at the end of the loan period.

Financial Leadership and Collective Thinking

As a business owner how many times have you experienced an increase in company profit followed by a sudden request for additional expenditures from one or more of your organizational divisions? The underlying reason for this is the people that staff your company will always tend toward spending every dollar that comes through the door. You may even have this tendency yourself.

There is a kind of group mentality that takes place in any organization when it comes to producing income. It is like an unspoken agreement among the staff members to produce enough money to cover what they believe they need to spend. The agreement does not include producing a surplus of income. The group wants to spend everything it has. It will only strive to increase its productivity if it sees the need to have more money to spend.

The problem with this collective way of thinking is you’ll never have a surplus account to cover expansion of the business, emergency situations, investing or unusual expenditures such as paying off a loan. An organization is wise to have a financial cushion to cover expenses associated with these events. The goal of the group being to spend everything that comes in right now; it is not the least bit interested in budgeting any of it for future needs.


To be successful at building up a surplus account you have to create the perception the money you are setting aside for these purposes is money being spent. You can’t wait to see what’s left over at the end of the week and plan to transfer that to your surplus account. There won’t be anything left over. The various divisions in your company will find legitimate reasons to spend it. Productions costs will suddenly go up, equipment will suddenly fail, or a department may suddenly find a sale on material or parts they must order in bulk this week to get the discount.

The head of your financial planning department has to be a person that can think beyond the groups’ collective determinations. That leader must be able to remove their focus on the details of daily operations and give their attention to the overall viability of your company. They must be able to establish a system where the surplus money is taken away from the total income before anyone else gets to see it. It must be perceived by all the divisions as an expense or they will find another way to spend it.

If you, as the business owner cannot lead your financial planning in this way, then find a more objective person to fill the position. Don’t allow your staff to spend everything. Implement strategies that ensure your staff will increase the company income to meet the demand for money they believe they need to spend. That is how you can maintain the viability of your business and accommodate future expansion.

5 Things To Look For In A Car Finance Company

Sometimes choosing a finance company can feel like something of a lottery. You look at all the deals available, choose the one you like the sound of and hope that it is a good deal and that the company offering it are sound.

But by applying a few set criteria you can actually shop around and reduce the risk of going with a company that isn’t what you are looking for in a car finance company. But what criteria should you be using?

5 Things To Look For in a Car Finance Company

  1. Price. No matter what you read about choosing companies for finance, price has to be an important aspect of your consideration. It is a simple fact of life that no matter how good the approved auto loan offers are, we have a budget that we can’t afford to break. Stick to your budget and you’re avoid problems. So shop around and make sure that you are only dealing with companies that can give you approved car finance deals that are within your budget. Getting a good car is important, and applying for credit may help you get a better car today, instead of saving money gradually. Still you don’t want to break the bank.
  2. Trust? Can you trust the company that are offering you approved car finance? And before you answer yes or no have you looked around and compared the deals? Every company develops a reputation, whether good or bad, so it is important that you find out what that reputation is. Ask people that you know, ask on car forums, Google their name (and remember that all companies get some complaints – and what’s even worse, many companies get fake negative ratings from competitors).
  3. Age. You want to know that a company that is offering you approved car finance is not some shifty company that will end up going bust next month and forcing you to repay all the money you borrowed over night. So make sure that they are a company in it for the long haul… and a good indicator of this is how long they have been around.
  4. People. Can you get in touch with actual people? It’s all well and good being offered a good deal by a company but if you can’t speak to anyone when you have a problem then that can be a huge issue. Make sure that there are REAL people involved in the company. A tell-tale sign is the presence (or a lack) of a phone number on their website.
  5. The Fine Print. It is amazing how few people read the fine print after they sign their documents. They get too excited about the money and the car. But the fine print can be vital to any deal.

Such things as changing interest rates, fines for late payment, what control they have over the deal etc can make a massive difference to what you thought was a basic auto loan offer. So apply your due diligence and check out what they are really offering you by reading the fine print and asking questions.

The process of Creative Entrepreneurship

“We dared to think creatively. That means we have to take risks”

ONE of our job as a businessman, in addition to interpersonal skills, leadership, and managerial, should also be able to perform creative tasks. Creativity is an important element in existence and development of a business. for the entrepreneur, as if no day without creativity. Time for us to keep creative. Moreover, if in the previous section, is often cited extraordinary rate of growth of entrepreneurship in the United States, in Indonesia alone, the diversity of business and number of entrepreneurs, not as much as in the United States or other countries.
In the United States for example, there are businesses that are still rare and have not been socialized in Indonesia, namely the business rent clothes and baby gear. So in fact many kinds of business we can do, as long as we want creatively. In any case, we must be creative? Be creative in some ways, among others, choose the type of business and choosing the time to start.
So, do not hesitate to create conditions in which each element can be creative. Make every angle, every mood in your business, conducive to the emergence of creative ideas. Creativity itself, it requires a process, namely the creative process. So initially, it is necessary preparation for the creative, albeit not formal. Live, how we ourselves make it a creative working atmosphere.
In the process, it also requires a creative turns our concentration. In fact, that often happens, when we did the concentration, even at a stalemate. As a result, we can not do anything about it, and gradually became frustrated. And, in fact frustrating it is part of the creative process itself.
In this condition, in my opinion, we should not give up or despair. Do not stop there. Rest assured, in time, insight or illumination will appear. Then, we pass the next creative process: incubation or settling into the subconscious. In time, namely the unintentional condition, may emerge illumination that means we have found a creative idea.
An important step to this, process or execute creative ideas into concrete, for the betterment of our business. Even in our opinion, for the sake of customer satisfaction too, need a creative approach. Creative and keyword search in the affairs of the capital or business development fund, increased production, improved design, marketing, and so forth.
Creative people, are people who dare to take risks. Just how big the actual quality of creativity that will affect the business risks being run. In fact, someone who dared to think creatively, means he’s willing to take risks.

So, understand the minute details of your financial capital as required. And best of luck. Your next step is to get funding. So, look positive and be ready to dig up the bucks!
