Amicus Capital Group senior staff bring in excess of 40 years of combined experience in the field of legal finance, with more than 20 years additional time spent in finance, sales, marketing, and advertising to and for attorneys. Additionally, we have served in the capacities of Manager of Corporate Planning for what was then America’s fourteenth largest banking company, Chief Operating Officer of America’s first nationwide legal finance company, and that company’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. As such, we are positioned to deliver exceptional consulting services to our rapidly expanding base of attorney-customers.
Our Business Consulting services include, but are not limited to:
Project-Based Consulting, which is especially helpful for law firms searching for financing, whether to face the challenges of an unforeseen financial crisis or to prospectively level the playing field against cash-rich adversaries. Our senior staff members are familiar with the lenders competing in this market niche, what they are looking to finance, and how best to present your firm during the application process. Many of our best customers began working with us in this capacity.
CFO Services, which may seem like a luxury most trial lawyers cannot afford, but are actually a critical tool for building the success of your firm. Because plaintiffs’ practices are normally small in terms of headcount, attorneys often fail to realize that they are running large business based upon total fee revenues collected. Large businesses in America and around the world use financial resources as a tool for building growth and success. The duties of the Chief Financial Officer include accounting, financial planning, capital budgeting, cash management, financial reporting, many and other critical functions that contribute to the ultimate success of the enterprise. Law firms, because they are typically formed as an LLC, LLP, or Sub-chapter S Corporation, face difficulties other major businesses do not usually face because they cannot accumulate excess capital resources for future use. As a result, it is imperative to have the best professional help available. Amicus Capital Services, LLC offers precisely that type of assistance. These include, among other things:
- Financial Accounting Systems Design
- Measuring and Reporting Results
- Business Planning and Budgeting
- Comparison of Actual Performance to Budget
- Capital Planning and Cash Management
- Establishment of Appropriate Lines of Credit
- Determination of Proper Blend of Financing Tools
