Just like former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, who took his game to Montreal this summer, one of the world’s largest litigation financiers has now also set up shop in Quebec’s largest city.

Bentham IMF Capital Ltd. launched a Montreal office this month after hiring a former partner from leading Canadian firm McCarthy Tétrault, marking the fifth hire that the Australia-based litigation finance firm has made in the Great White North since heading to Canada in 2016.

Pierre-Jérôme Bouchard, who goes by “P.J.,” will serve as investment manager and legal counsel at Bentham and oversee business development efforts for Quebec’s legal community, Bentham said in a statement. Bentham first opened a Toronto office two years ago that is led by chief investment officer Tania Sulan, a Bentham veteran who also led the firm’s expansion into Adelaide, Australia, in 2009.
