Bentham's appeal funding allows a client or lawyer to monetize a portion of a judgment while the appeal is pending. Our funding is non-recourse, meaning if the case fails there is no need to repay the investment.

What Types of Cases?

All commercial cases, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, trade secret theft, copyright / trademark / patent infringement and complex business disputes.

Please note that we do not fund personal injury, discrimination, or malpractice cases.

Benefits of Appeal Funding:

  • 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 attorneys fees, assist with the high cost of litigation and enable you to afford counsel of your choice.
  • Our funding provides support against opponents seeking to outspend you.
  • 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 enables law firms with diversified portfolios of cases to cover most or all of their fixed costs and still recover significant contingency fees.
  • 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.

How Does the Process Work?

The first step is to contact us to provide us with information on the case, the lawyers, and the court. Under a non-disclosure agreement we will provide preliminary deal terms to you. Deal terms depend on case merits and estimated time to resolution (frequently ‘stepping up’ for longer cases). After conducting due diligence we finalize terms and execute a funding agreement.

If you have a case that meets our criteria please contact us.
