Instead of waiting months or years, lawsuit funding can help you gain access now to the value of your lawsuit — long before it settles or your lawsuit goes to trial. And that money is yours to keep even if you don’t win your case. That is what we mean when we say the loan is non-recourse. All the loans offered by Tribeca to consumers are non-recourse loans.
Your Tribeca Capital loan can be available to you very quickly if you meet Tribeca’s basic and easy to verify qualifications.
Have You Filed a Lawsuit?
Except in very limited situations – usually involving class actions or large bankruptcy cases – you must have a pending lawsuit in order for Tribeca to offer you a litigation loan. It is easy to see why. Just saying that you have a claim against someone cannot compel them to pay you. If you’ve filed a lawsuit, there are protections that will ensure that Tribeca is paid from the settlement proceeds when your case is concluded, just like you and your attorney are. A lawsuit also offers a fairly predictable path that helps Tribeca estimate the value of your case and the amount of time it will take to resolve it. You can qualify for a lawsuit loan if you have just filed the lawsuit, but you can also qualify for a loan if your case has been pending some time or even if you have reached a settlement but no money has changed hands. Tribeca might even be able to fund a loan if your lawsuit is on appeal.
Are You Represented by an Attorney?
Although it is possible to file a lawsuit without the aid of an attorney, to qualify for a lawsuit loan with Tribeca, it is necessary that you have an attorney representing your interests. Tribeca will consult with your attorney to gather the information necessary for us to process your application and make a decision about financing your litigation. We also know from many years of experience that your chances of settling your case are substantially better if you are represented by an attorney. Tribeca will never attempt to influence the course of the lawsuit. We leave the strategizing to you and your attorney. Knowing that you are represented by a capable legal team, Tribeca can be assured that the case is being conducted efficiently and expertly in a manner that keeps your best interests at heart.
Do You Live in One of the States Where Tribeca Capital Does Business?
Unfortunately, Tribeca Capital is not able to enter into a transaction with residents of certain states. Lawsuit loans in some states are highly regulated and at present are too expensive for Tribeca or the consumer to undertake. But, laws and policies change all the time, and Tribeca is continually assessing the legal climate to determine where litigation funding is feasible.
We hope that in the future this will change and we will be able to provide lawsuit funding to deserving plaintiffs regardless of where they live. But for now, we have to limit our offer of pre-settlement funding to certain states where we can do the most good.

Are You Ready to File an Application?
You can begin the application process by filling out the form on this website or by calling Tribeca at (866) 388-2288. It costs nothing to apply and takes only a few minutes. The value of the case lies in its strength and does not depend on your financial status or your credit score. Therefore, we will never ask you to divulge personal information like your income, and we will never pull your credit report.
After we receive your application, we will contact your attorney to learn more about the type of case you filed and about its litigation status. We will determine how much the case is worth and how long it is likely to last. The stronger your case is, the more valuable it is, and the more likely Tribeca can make you an offer. Once Tribeca calculates the value of the claim, it will offer you terms and conditions for release of advances and for repayment once the case is concluded.
When we offer you a lawsuit loan, we will also send you paperwork to sign. Once you execute the agreement, Tribeca will transmit the advance according to your preference and the terms you agreed upon.
If you start your application now, you could have money in hand within just days. Fill out the short application form here on the website or call (866) 388-2288 to talk with one of our staff who will guide you through the process and happily answer any questions you have with no obligation.
