Disclaimer For Use Of The Word “Loan” On This Website

The term “loan” or “loans,” when or where used by either this website or by any employee, owner or associate of TriMark Legal Funding LLC to describe lawsuit funding is not an accurate legal or financial definition of the transaction because NON-RECOURSE PLAINTIFF LAWSUIT FUNDING IS NOT A LOAN; instead, the transaction is a non-recourse purchase of a portion of the future potential proceeds of a claim or lawsuit award or settlement whose repayment is contingent upon the successful outcome of the lawsuit or legal action.

A loan, on the other hand, is a transaction that always requires repayment. Our legal funding only requires repayment if the plaintiff receives a favorable cash settlement award. If the plaintiff loses their case, they are under no obligation to repay the funded amount.

Any and all use of, or reference to, the word loan, loans and any or all related or associated word combinations or phrases that contain the word loan or loans by this website or by any owner or employee of TriMark Legal Funding LLC or by other people in any way associated with this website or TriMark Legal Funding LLC at large, is automatically and irrevocably included in, covered by and protected under this word-use disclaimer.

TriMark Legal Funding LLC Is Not A Direct Lender, Bank or Financial Institution

TriMark Legal Funding LLC provides an online legal funding pre-screening, matching, and referral service that pre-screens, matches and refers potential clients to 3rd party lawsuit funding companies (investors). TriMark Legal Funding LLC may use words and phrases on its website such as “fund”, “offer”, “provide”, “funder”, “funding provider” and other similar words and phrases that are in common use to describe and promote its pre-screening, matching and referral service, however, use of these and all similar words, phrases, and common-use terms are in no way intended to state, imply, infer or represent, directly or indirectly, that TriMark Legal Funding LLC is a direct lender, bank or financial institution.

TriMark Legal Funding LLC is not a direct lender, bank or financial institution; TriMark Legal Funding LLC offers a pre-screening, matching and referral service only and may sometimes be referred to as a “broker” or “facilitator”.

If you choose to accept funding from any of the legal funding companies to which TriMark Legal Funding LLC may refer you, the contract, agreement, and repayment obligation will be between you and said legal funding company, NOT between you and TriMark Legal Funding LLC.

TriMark Legal Funding LLC will pre-screen applications and applicants and will request and gather documentation and information from the applicant’s attorney to determine funding eligibility and the likelihood of successful funding using known variables and a variety of eligibility requirements and criteria that may change from time to time without notice. TriMark Legal Funding LLC reserves the right to decline any application or applicant that, in its sole discretion, does not meet or will not satisfy the funding criteria requirements of the investors to which it refers potential clients. Funding criteria requirements and case eligibility requirements are subject to change from time to time without notice.

TriMark Legal Funding LLC does not offer to or guarantee that it can, arrange to fund on all cases or all case types and the types of cases eligible for funding through TriMark Legal Funding LLC are subject to change from time to time without notice. Each case must qualify for funding based on its own individual merits.

For a current list of case types eligible for funding consideration, refer to this page.

If, and each time, you accept funding from any company TriMark Legal Funding LLC may refer you to, TriMark Legal Funding LLC will receive financial compensation for arranging the referral. This financial compensation may or may not be disclosed in the funding contract you will execute with the lawsuit funding company prior to receipt of the funding proceeds.

Under this TOUA, by contacting and/or applying for legal funding through TriMark Legal Funding LLC in any manner whatever, you specifically, explicitly and irrevocably agree not to hold TriMark Legal Funding LLC responsible for any loss or damage, perceived, speculated or actual, that may occur as a result of applying for funding, waiting for approval, receiving a denial or decline during any point in the application procedure or that may occur as a result of accepting any funding offer or financial assistance from any legal funding company to which TriMark Legal Funding LLC may refer you. TriMark Legal Funding LLC specifically, explicitly and irrevocably disclaims all responsibility and all liability for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, punitive or other damages, or lost profits, perceived, speculated or actual, that may result directly, indirectly or consequentially from the approval or denial of funding and availability or non-availability of funding, from your acceptance of any funding offer or from any other use of our service whatever.

By completing an application for or requesting legal funding through this website or via any other means whatsoever, you acknowledge that you understand that TriMark Legal Funding LLC is not a direct lender, bank or financial institution and you also irrevocably authorize TriMark Legal Funding LLC to share any and all information provided by you and your legal counsel with any or all of its network of investors and underwriters and you specifically and explicitly give your permission for TriMark Legal Funding LLC and its network of investors and/or underwriters to contact you and/or your legal counsel to discuss your case and/or funding request(s).

Rates, Fees and Terms

TriMark Legal Funding LLC works with a wide variety of investors and other funding sources in order to provide clients with the lowest and most competitive costs and the highest possible value. In addition to charging a fee (sometimes called an origination fee or broker fee) for the service TriMark Legal Funding LLC provides, investors may also charge fees to offset underwriting and administrative costs and some investors may charge a minimum return fee or require a minimum contract term (such as 3 or 6 months, for example).

Because TriMark Legal Funding LLC offers it’s matching and referral service on a wide variety of case types and works with a wide variety of funding sources, it is generally not possible to quote or guarantee absolute rates, fees or terms until an application has been completed, full documentation has been received from Plaintiff’s attorney and a full underwriting evaluation or review has been conducted by the actual investor(s). Therefore, any and all rates, fees, and terms that are, or are not, discussed or disclosed prior to the conclusion of a full underwriting review should be considered estimates only and are in no way binding.

Once a full underwriting review has been completed, a funding agreement containing a full disclosure of all rates, fees, costs, terms, and APR will be furnished to the client and/or their attorney for review and execution.

For the purpose of full disclosure, all funding contracts will usually contain one or more fees for origination, administrative, underwriting, etc.
