Recovery FirstBy Legal Futures Associate Recovery First

The sad news of the administration of VFS Legal, the latest in a number of funders servicing the claimant market, will inevitably have a knock-on effect on those who have used their services over the years.

Your firms’ options following the VFS Legal administration

If you have been impacted by the changes at VFS Legal Limited, you may wish to consider restructuring your law firm as a result.

Recovery First specialises in assisting law firms with their strategic exits from particular segments of the legal market during corporate restructurings. Our aim is to retain maximum value for the law firm throughout this process.

We collaborate closely with professionals in restructuring, accounting, insolvency practice, and corporate recovery, aiming to ensure the most profitable outcome is achieved on any file transfer agreement.

We provide a flexible approach and can facilitate a phased approach of transferring work to our panel of solicitors.

Alternative legal funding options

Due to the administration of VFS Legal, law firms will no longer be able to obtain disbursement funding for their cases; however, there are alternative legal funding options available.

Companies, such as Annecto Legal may be able to assist law firms in sourcing the most appropriate legal funding options for their cases.
