Benefits of Funding with IMF Bentham Asia

Litigation Funding is not always well understood - either as a mechanism to enable a meritorious claim to proceed, or as a way to mitigate a client’s risk.

Our funding is non-recourse – if you lose your case, you owe us nothing.

If your claim does fail, any adverse costs risk is covered. This means you won't have to pay the other side's costs.

Our funding can help pay your lawyers' fees, assist with the high cost of litigation and enable you to afford counsel of your choice.

Our funding lets you monetize or "cash out" a portion of your recent judgment, to reduce the risk and stress that it may be reversed or reduced.

Our funding provides support against opponents seeking to outspend you.

Our funding enables law firms with diversified portfolios of cases to cover most or all of their fixed costs and still recover significant contingency fees (in those jurisdictions where contingency fees are allowed).

We provide additional analysis of your case - we conduct our own due diligence and we may also confirm our internal analysis with our network of legal experts.

We do not control legal or settlement decisions.





Funding for Insolvency

Funding of commercial cases claims arising out of insolvency and restructuring, which allows insolvency practitioners a client to finance all or a portion of the legal fees and costs of their litigation and thereby pursue recoveries for the estate whilst managing risk.

Commercial Litigation

In Asia IMF Bentham will fund single party commercial litigation claims, to the extent it is possible to do so under local laws and regulation (for example, under the “Access to Justice” exception in Hong Kong).

International Arbitration

The costs and risks associated with international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration can be significant. IMF Bentham Asia can assist by providing finance for these claims. We will consider enquiries for ad hoc arbitrations, as well as those brought under the major arbitral institutions and conventions such as ICSID, ICC, LCIA, HKIAC and ACICA.
