Harvey R. Hirschfeld, co-founder and President of LawCash stated, "At LawCash, our hallmark is fast and excellent service. The LawCash team of professionals has decades of experience working in the financial, business, and legal industries. We understand the needs of our clients, and how to address them as quickly, efficiently, and at as low a cost to our clients, as possible. We believe Spherix management shares these same hallmarks and we believe that working together we can expand business opportunities for both companies." Mr. Hirschfeld has over 35 years of experience in consumer and commercial lending, as well as financial administration. Mr. Hirschfeld is also the Chairman of and was a driving force in the creation of the American Legal Finance Association ("ALFA"), a trade association that represents the leading consumer legal funding companies across the country. Formed in 2004, ALFA is dedicated to ensuring fair, ethical and transparent funding standards within the legal funding industry. Before co-creating LawCash, Mr. Hirschfeld served as Senior Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, and a Director of HealthShield Capital Corporation from June 1996 until August 2002. He was a founder and previously was a Director of Esquire Bank (www.esquirebank.com), a full service, federally-chartered and FDIC insured bank specializing in providing banking services to small- to mid-size law firms and supporting organizations. In addition, Mr. Hirschfeld currently serves as a Director of Oritani Financial Corporation, the parent of Oritani Bank in New Jersey.
Anthony Hayes, Chief Executive Officer of Spherix, stated, "Spherix is proud to have executed a monthly revenue generating consulting agreement with LawCash. The Insurance Information Institute's Fact Book states that of the $350 billion that is paid out annually for litigation claims in the United States, over $160 billion is paid out for personal injury claims. The litigation finance industry is an exciting and growing sector and Spherix brings years of litigation management experience to this relationship. This agreement is a real opportunity to diversify into areas where there is a logical fit with our current resources and abilities. We look forward to working with LawCash and adding value to both companies."
