Bentham funds portfolios of cases for law firms on a non-recourse basis.
To be eligible for funding, a portfolio must meet the following requirements:
All commercial cases, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, trade secret theft, intellectual property including breach of copyright, trademark or patent infringement and complex business disputes.
Please note that we do not fund personal injury, discrimination, or malpractice cases.
Bentham invests a portion of the fee budgets in 3 or more cases being handled by the firm on a contingency. When the firm collects its contingency fees from one or more of the cases, it pays Bentham, a multiple of the amount funded, with this return cross-collateralized across the cases.
The first step is to contact us to provide us with information on the proposed portfolio cases. Under a non-disclosure agreement we will provide preliminary deal terms to you. After conducting due diligence and approval by our investment committee, we finalize terms and execute a funding agreement.
