Settlements That Are Made To Last

Settlements That Are Made To Last

Provide your claimants with a tax-advantaged solution that turns their settlement into a guaranteed stream of income, protected from market volatility

What is our Tax-Advantaged Settlement Solution?

Our solution, the Non-Qualified Assignment (NQA), is designed to help claimants keep more of their settlement by receiving the income in multiple payments and deferring their taxes over time. Our NQA is for cases that fall outside of personal physical injury claims and litigation as defined under IRC Section 104(a)(2) and is not eligible for an IRC Section 130 qualified assignment.

Attorneys will generally need to have a fee arrangement in place at the time of settlement which provides for the structuring of payments solely from the claimant s settlement proceeds. Structuring of attorney fees could have important legal and tax consequences. Attorneys should consult with their own tax and legal advisors prior to agreeing to structure legal fees to determine the tax and other legal consequences. The method of tax reporting with respect to such fees is subject to change, where we deem such change to be required under the Federal tax law or IRS guidance.
