IMF Bentham completes merger with Omni Bridgeway Holdings

Dispute resolution financier IMF Bentham has announced that it has completed the merger with Omni Bridgeway Holdings previously announced on October 15, 2019. The combined IMF and Omni Bridgeway business accelerates IMF’s growth and creates a diversified global litigation funding platform across common law and civil law jurisdictions in developed and emerging markets. The company now offers end-to-end solutions for clients from pre-judgment merits funding to post-judgment enforcement and recovery. 

Having previously described the acquisition as a “merger of equals,” Andrew Saker, managing director and chief executive officer of IMF Bentham, describes the combined resources as considerable. “We have over A$2.2 billion (US$1.43 billion) in capital to finance disputes and enforcement proceedings of significant size and complexity throughout the world. Our combined company has 18 offices in 10 countries across Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, the UK and the US and 145 professionals experienced in legal and recovery systems worldwide, fluent in more than 20 languages.” 

IMF Bentham will continue to be listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. The combined group will assume one global name pending a rebrand projected for completion by June 30, 2020. IMF Bentham operates offices throughout Australia, as well as Hong Kong, Singapore, the Dubai International Finance Center, four cities in Europe, four cities in the United States and two cities in Canada. Omni Bridgeway has offices in Singapore, the Dubai International Finance Center and four cities in Europe.
