Third-party dispute finance for Asian corporates - In-House Congress in Singapore

IMF Bentham - Third-party dispute finance for Asian corporates
IMF Bentham’s Clive Bowman and Tom Glasgow presented a workshop titled ‘Third Party Dispute Finance for corporates – The New Normal’ in Singapore on 19 September. The workshop was held during the 19th In-House Congress Singapore, part of the highly successful In-House Community Congress series, hosted by Pacific Business Press. IMF Bentham was also pleased to be a co-host of the Congress which brought together approximately 180 leading in-house lawyers, CEOs, company directors and compliance professionals from both the private and public sectors in Singapore.

The presentation by Clive and Tom included a discussion about the benefits of dispute resolution finance for corporates, how the funding process works in practice, including the main investment criteria assessed by funders, and provided examples of funding models and the range of outcomes for cases funded by the client versus cases funded by a third-party funder.

Tom and his colleagues, Arvindran Manoosegaran, also based in Singapore, and Cheng-Yee Khong, based in Hong Kong, assess and manage funded cases for IMF Bentham throughout Asia, including arbitration, litigation and insolvency claims.
