    What We Do

  • LAW FIRMS

    ZebraLC works with law firms from sole practitioners to Top 50 law firms with significant external investors. Projects may be as simple as reviewing firms’ current WIP management procedures, to carrying out diagnostic reviews and/or WIP valuations for external investment, bank funding, insurance and succession planning. Specialist experience supporting personal injury and clinical negligence firms.

    M&A & LAW FIRM INVESTMENT

    Unrivalled experience in legal sector M&A technical and WIP valuation and due diligence.  Acting for buyers, investors, sellers, funders and accountants.

    BANKS & SPECIALIST FUNDERS

    ZebraLC has advised in ‘new to bank’ facilities, refinance, specialised relationship management and restructuring.

    We have also advised specialist funders entering the personal injury market including US entrants.

    Our reports enable greater visibility and understanding of law firms’ operational risk, governance, technical capability, WIP value and financial performance.

    ACCOUNTING, RESTRUCTURING & BUSINESS ADVISORY

    Our projects lead us to work alongside and also be instructed by other professional advisors within the accounting, restructuring and business advisory sector. Our technical and financial experience enables us to implement/recommend operational enhancements to improve cash flow maximising recoveries and outcomes for investors and creditors.

    SUPPORTING INSURERS

    ZebraLC helps build positive relationships between law firms, PII and ATE insurers by providing independent reports to add ‘comfort and confidence’.

We instructed ZebraLC to carry out the technical and WIP due diligence in the acquisition of Lees. Zebra has an excellent reputation in personal injury WIP valuation. The project gave us an invaluable insight to the Firm.  Zoe and her team work in a discreet manner and follow a strict confidentiality protocol which is imperative in law firm acquisition. I recommend them highly.

ZebraLC™ was recommended to Fairpoint PLC as niche experts in WIP and technical due diligence with a unique offering. Assessing the recoverability and cash conversion of the WIP of the acquisition target formed a key part of our overall due diligence programme. Understanding and diligencing complex legal matters across a variety of contingent and non-contingent work-types required a particular blend of legal and financial expertise and this is exactly what ZebraLC brought to the evaluation process. Zoe and her team worked to tight deadlines and operated in a discreet and confidential manner, an absolute imperative for a publicly quoted company such as Fairpoint. We look forward to working with ZebraLC again.
