Local force with international allies
ROLAND ProzessFinanz AG has been on the market since 2001 and is thus one of the most experienced and established commercial litigation funders.
In November 2019, Omni Bridgeway and IMF Bentham merged their two businesses to become a leading global dispute resolution financier. The transaction followed the 2017 merger of Omni Bridgeway and ROLAND ProzessFinanz, which created continental Europe’s leading litigation funder.
ROLAND ProzessFinanz, Omni Bridgeway and IMF Bentham have adopted the unified global name of Omni Bridgeway and will unveil a new global corporate identity with that name in the coming months.
Together, the companies have 18 offices in 10 countries, and a team of 145 professionals, fluent in more than 20 languages, with operations spanning Europe, the UK, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East and the US. With expertise in legal and recovery systems world-wide, the team understands local markets and can assist with complex domestic and cross-border disputes globally.
