Chambers recognises IMF Bentham as ‘Band 1' dispute resolution funder across Australia, Asia-Pacific and US

by Kimberly Marshall | Jun 28, 2019

IMF Bentham is delighted to be recognised as the only ‘Band 1' funder in the Asia-Pacific from the legal industry’s leading global directory, Chambers and Partners. We are also one of only two funders ranked Band 1 in the United States.

Chambers has just released its 2019 Litigation Support guide on 27 June 2019. The guide ranks leading professional services providers, including litigation funders, in key markets. This is the first year Chambers has ranked litigation funders in the Asia-Pacific and the ranking confirms our leading market position.

Chambers is an independent global ranking agency and has been benchmarking legal industry participants for almost thirty years. For their 2019 guide, Chambers’ researchers interviewed lawyers and clients around the world and assessed funders based on their funding portfolios.

Chambers’ review noted:

  • We are the "largest and most established litigation funder" in the region.
  • Clients say: "They act not just as a funder, but also add their own expertise in complex litigation.”
  • Our “reputation and stability” are also highlighted as advantages, with clients and lawyers commenting on the "trust" and "familiarity" that judges accord them.”
  • We are also held in high regard in the Singapore and Hong Kong markets, with operators in both jurisdictions.

We are grateful to receive this industry and peer recognition and feedback. We work with experts throughout the legal industry and are humbled by their endorsement.
