Partnering with solicitors

Working together to support your clients


At Level, we are committed to working side by side with our valued legal partners across family law and probate.

By entering into a single agreement with approved law firms, we can efficiently cover all loans that we provide to your clients. We offer both secured and unsecured lending, tailored to your client’s individual circumstances, as well as separate facilities to cover living expenses.


Where your clients don’t require funding for their legal fees, but may wish to access some of their settlement early for other purposes, such as a deposit for re-housing or paying inheritance tax, we can also help.


Our fast, flexible funding and simplified lending process helps your client meet your fees or achieve their own financial goals as swiftly as possible, while giving you the space to focus on their case.

Our loan process

If you’re a solicitor and your client is considering a loan from Level, here’s how our funding process works.

1. Application

2. Advice

3. Funding

4. Repayment

1. Application

4. Repayment

To start an application, please contact us and request a form. We'll review your client's eligibility and ask your opinion on the likely success of their case, aiming to give an initial lending decision in 1-2 working days. 

To make sure our loan is suitable and your client understands their obligation to us, they need to take legal advice before we approve their loan. If the loan is secured over property, they'll also need to take separate independent mortgage advice. 

Our loan is a flexible facility. For legal fee funding, each time you raise an invoice we'll settle it and pay it into your client account, subject to your client's approval. We'll also send an annual statement, and any ad-hoc statements you need.

The repayment date varies on a case-by-case basis, but the loan can be repaid at any point during proceedings and we don't charge early repayment penalties.

For more information about our application process, read our guide.

Family law

Our loans cover legal fees for family law proceedings, including divorce, separation, child arrangements, Children Act proceedings and ToLATA.

It may be possible to unlock a proportion of your settlement early to help you move forward with your life. This might be used for renting or buying property, paying urgent bills or simply to maintain a lifestyle. 

Strategic liquidity funding

Law firm finance

We also offer bespoke financing solutions to our partner solicitor firms – assisting with things such as cash flow management and refinancing CFAs, alongside one-off situations where funding can be helpful.

Contentious probate

During contentious probate proceedings, our loans can pay for legal fees and living expenses while a resolution is reached regarding a disputed will or estate.

Even if an estate is uncontested, it can still take time before an inheritance is settled. Our loans help beneficiaries and executors alike by providing liquidity in advance to cover taxes or any other expenses.
