SOLUTIONS FOR THE BUSINESS OF LAW

Taurus Capital was established in 2016 to provide enlightened financial solutions to the legal fraternity. The provision of multi-disciplinary funding to law firms is widely practiced internationally and Taurus Capital is proud to be the South African pioneer of this global best-practice. We are a proud member of the Capricorn Capital Partners group of companies.

Our team is comprised of specialist consultants who have a deep understanding of the commercial intricacies and growth constraints faced by the modern law firm. As experts in the business of law, we recognise that each firm faces unique challenges and operational constraints. We seamlessly merge best-practice financial management with bespoke solutions designed around your current infrastructure and strategic vision.

What We Do

Taurus Capital delivers an array of multi-faceted investment and financial solutions that drive sustainable business optimisation for law firms.

In the current economic climate, a law firm’s corporate management is expected to implement innovative solutions to mitigate risk and cost, while simultaneously reflecting increased turnover and profits year-on-year. This places enormous pressure on the legal profession, due to the unpredictable, lengthy and illiquid nature of their work.

The cumbersome process to acquire finance often deters law firms and corporate legal teams from pursuing much-needed growth opportunities.

Taurus Capital offers several specialist funding solutions for your law firm. Each is delivered after an extensive consulting process; which unveils current financial inhibitors and opportunities for greater business optimisation within the firm.
