A unique solution specifically designed for personal injury practices

The Expert Access™ Program...

BridgePoint's Expert Access™ program combines two essential services for lawyers: the ability to source qualified experts anywhere in Canada through our comprehensive partner roster, and the ability to defer payment for assessments until settlement.

Exclusively offered by BridgePoint Financial

This game changing service is offered exclusively by BridgePoint and is fully automated and accessible online through the BridgePoint Portal.

How It Works

Expert completes assessment and invoices lawyer.

Expert sells invoice to BridgePoint. Lawyer receives direction to pay BridgePoint (not Expert) upon settlement.

Lawyer pays invoice to BridgePoint at settlement (if more than 2 years old interest beyond the two year mark is also paid).

Our Expert Partners

Have your accounts receivable become a growing problem?

We have the answer.

Healthy investments in high quality expert reports are the lifeblood of a personal injury law firm, playing a vital role in obtaining full and fair settlements for accident victims.

These investments represent the largest part of a firm’s total disbursements, posing a significant challenge from a cash flow perspective. To alleviate this burden, lawyers often seek deferred payment arrangements from their experts. This cash flow solution for the law firm now becomes an accounts receivable burden for the expert.

How does it work?

Unlike a loan, under our Expert Access™ program BridgePoint purchases invoices from the expert - putting payment in the expert's pocket as soon as the work is completed BridgePoint assumes all timing and collection risk for payment, saving the expert not only the time cost of money (a dollar in two years’ time is not the same as a dollar in hand today), but the expense of pursuing aging receivables and occasionally receiving a negotiated reduction on their account.

BridgePoint also serves as a matchmaker between lawyers and experts through its active and growing network of law firm clients who use our Expert Access program.

WIN-WIN

The result is a win-win arrangement that satisfies the cash flow needs of both lawyers and experts while maximizing the prospects for full compensation for accident victims.

"Not all litigation lending companies are alike as we have discovered. We only trust BridgePoint to look after out clients' pre-settlement financing needs. We value the extra steps they take to ensure their loans are appropriate to each clients' circumstances, and proportionate to the claim value and stage of litigation."

- CHARLES GLUCKSTEIN, GLUCKSTEIN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS

"My client received a loan of $5,000 from you, and she then borrowed $5,000 from another lender. BridgePoint's interest was under $700. For less time on the same amount, the interest was over $1,600 from the other lender... more than double BridgePoint! Your company has been telling me for years that you are different and now I'm certain of it!"
