Kobre & Kim and Bentham IMF Launch First Fund Empowering Israeli Tech Innovators to Challenge Industry Giants

July 31, 2018

Kobre & Kim and Bentham IMF, a leading commercial litigation funder, have launched a first-of-its-kind disputes fund that empowers startup and growth-stage Israeli tech companies to pursue legal claims against virtually any adversary, no matter the size or location.

The fund addresses two of the biggest challenges emerging companies face when pursuing high-stakes claims against larger and often international counterparties — it offers a total of $30 million in risk-free financing for litigation costs, coupled with a conflict-free legal team that can act adversely against global, industry-leading tech companies.

The arrangement significantly reduces risk for companies seeking to pursue litigation ­­— if no damages are claimed, there is no cost involved. Potential clients include private companies, universities and research institutions, venture capital companies, and other investors. Examples of fundable claims include those stemming from trade secret violations, joint venture and other investor disputes, licensing and other commercial contract matters, and patent infringement matters. Kobre & Kim and Bentham IMF will fund each case, and Kobre & Kim will represent claimants through the duration of the litigation.
