High Spirits at Bentham IMF's Reception for the Official Opening of the San Francisco Office
The cocktail reception was held on Americano’s outdoor terrace at the Hotel Vitale, just across the street from Bentham’s new San Francisco office at 121 Spear Street. Matt Harrison, head of the new office, welcomed guests and introduced Michael Kay, Chairman of IMF Bentham. In his remarks, Michael noted the many things that the “down-under” Australians are known for, including the refrigerator, the underwater torpedo, and the electronic pacemaker. Therefore, in true Australian tradition, it was not unusual but very noteworthy for Bentham to be named one of the “Top Fifty Legal Innovators in the Last Fifty Years” by the American Lawyer Magazine. As Michael explained, Bentham will continue its commitment for innovation in the legal industry with new products to aid in the leveling of the playing field and to give access to justice to claimholders with meritorious claims.
Everyone at Bentham IMF appreciated the enthusiastic welcome that San Franciscans gave the new team and we believe it is a strong indication that Bentham will be partnering with the many legal professionals in the Bay Area.
