Firm Financial Strategy

Firmwide Qualified Settlement Fund

Qualified settlement funds (QSFs) afford extra time for strategic financial planning post-settlement. Firmwide QSFs are created around cases that have commonality, such as cases in one practice area, handled in a specific region, and/or by one law firm. Establishing a firmwide qualified settlement fund with Milestone is the best way for a law firm to leverage this settlement and tax planning solution.

Strengthen Your Firm's Financial Plan

A QSF is a trust that holds funds after a case settles, allowing the plaintiff, attorney(s) and law firm to independently strategize. Milestone can establish a fund for your entire law firm to use with any and all of its cases to manage cash flow and optimize revenue.
