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).
Provided the claim meets IMF Bentham’s investment criteria (meritorious claim, enforceable against a solvent defendant), there is a wide suite of finance options available. Minimum claim size is assessed on a case by case basis. These options can be used separately, or in combination.

  • Funding for the legal fees associated with pursuing the claim, capped to an agreed budget.
  • Funding for related disbursements such as barrister fees and expert reports.
  • Funding for any adverse costs and security for costs orders.
  • Preliminary funding for the costs of investigating potential claims, including counsel’s advice and other expert reports.

Our funding is non-recourse, meaning we are only paid if the case is successful.  On a successful resolution, IMF Bentham is typically entitled to reimbursement of the amounts it has paid plus a fee, calculated as a percentage of the resolution sum or a multiple of the amount invested.  The amount of the fee depends on the case and its duration. The fee is less if the case resolves sooner.
