Bentham IMF is the US arm of IMF Bentham Limited (ASX: IMF), the founders of the global commercial litigation finance industry, actively funding commercial litigation for 18 years and counting. The company’s combined investment portfolio has a total estimated recoverable amount of $5.6 billion AUD. It has 14 offices throughout the world and provides funding to clients around the globe including in the US, UK, Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Bentham’s funding works to level the playing field by providing the resources to pay for the soaring costs of high-stakes commercial litigation, including capital to hire the best legal counsel and experts. Its funding can also be used to finance operating or working capital during lengthy legal proceedings, to move litigation expenses off a company’s income statement and improve its bottom line, or to monetize a judgment while it is being appealed or in the collection process.
Bentham works with individual claimants and law firms, corporations, and partnerships of all sizes. The company offers risk-sharing and seeks an alignment of interests.
Bentham’s funding models and method of operation can be described in three simple words: simplicity, transparency, and fairness.
