About Bentham

Bentham is a litigation finance company providing investment capital to plaintiffs for large disputes in the United States and for international arbitration. Bentham is the U.S. arm of IMF Bentham Limited, the oldest and most experienced commercial funder in the world.

We offer law firms and their clients our unique experience, a risk-sharing partnership and a proven record of success unmatched by any other commercial litigation funder.



When other commercial litigation funders talk about experience they typically refer to their successful careers as lawyers or academics or business people. At Bentham, when we talk about experience, we’re referring to the fact that our team pioneered and helped shape the commercial litigation funding industry in Australia and in the U.S.

In over a decade, Bentham’s parent, IMF Bentham Limited, has reviewed several thousand cases and has seen over one hundred and fifty case investments worth at least two billion dollars in damages through to completion. No other U.S. funder can compare.




High-stakes litigation is often nasty, brutish and long. A strong partnership with Bentham can add enormous value to your cause. We share risk; we deploy financial, economic, investigative and ethical experts where needed; and we align the interests of all parties — client, law firm and funder — to enhance collaboration. We partner with you to help you win.




Bentham’s parent, IMF Bentham Limited, has an unmatched record of success in the commercial litigation finance industry. We boast many “firsts”: the first publicly listed litigation funder, in 2001; the first funder to be publicly regulated as a financial institution; the first funder to invest in claims breaking the $2 billion value barrier; and the first to fund disputes across five continents:  Australia, North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
