Having access to cash is a central component of running a contingent fee law firm. In an ideal world, a law firm can grow from excess fees generated by cases but the fact that case expenses are not deductible mean that taxes would have to be paid on the fees before they could be used for funding additional case expenses. In some years, excess fees may not be available.
