We are delighted to report that Bentham has just been ranked by Chambers in Band 1 in the U.S. and in Asia-Pacific. Bentham is the only litigation funder to be recognized as top-tier in both jurisdictions, and we look forward to Chambers expanding its rankings in the future to include our Canadian business.
As a company, we are honoured to be recognized as one of the best in the industry we’ve enjoyed the privilege of helping to shape since our parent company, IMF Bentham began investing in commercial litigation in the late 1990s and went public in 2001. Bentham is also delighted to earn high praise from the accomplished executives and lawyers who recommended we receive these top tier honours, leading Chambers to publish the following:
"Clients are impressed with their style of work and flexibility, with one commenting that they ‘have been very responsive, diligent and helpful in analyzing the claims. They spot issues we don't see on the first read-through.’"
"They often go beyond simply providing funding for a case, with one insolvency lawyer commenting: ‘They helped the client remain solvent through proceedings. I was shocked that they were accommodating enough to do that.’"
"IMF Bentham are well known for their ‘proactive approach’ to funding matters. Clients say: ‘They act not just as a funder, but also add their own expertise in complex litigation.’"
"Their reputation and stability are also highlighted as advantages, with clients and lawyers commenting on the ‘trust’ and ‘familiarity’ that judges accord them."
