Legalist’s government receivables strategy provides credit facilities secured by labor and services receivables owed by federal and state governments. We lend on a senior secured basis against unpaid invoices to help fund small business growth.
Government receivables financing allows companies to use their receivables from federal and state contracts as collateral to borrow funds for payroll and growth. Our funds focus on revolving credit facilities to high-growth small business contractors, sourced using our proprietary investment technology.
