Preferred Partners Program

Validity has a small number of close relationships with elite law firms called “preferred partners”. Our preferred partners are larger firms, mid-sized firms and trial boutiques. Our partners mirror the entrepreneurial spirit of their clients: they think creatively about business and accept risk to obtain rewards. They are the future of law firms.

Validity partners offer clients unique advantages such as:

  • contingency fee arrangements
  • reduced funding rates
  • working capital from Validity
  • state-of-the art advice on legal finance and its application

Validity provides a hands-on education in legal finance. Preferred partner firms benefit from:

  • help with marketing
  • risk-sharing and strategic growths
  • a means to boost firm profitability and litigation realization rates

We invite you to explore a preferred partnership with Validity.
