Australian Class Actions

In many jurisdictions around the world, including Australia, class actions, or other forms of group litigation, have established a means by which a large group of businesses, investors or other individuals can combine together in a single litigation.

A significant number of class actions have been brought over the last 20 years, many resulting in substantial settlements. At Woodsford, we anticipate significant growth in this area, particularly relating to securities and antitrust class actions.

Thanks to our experience across the international legal landscape, we have already been able to provide investment for several such cases in Australia. We can offer a range of financial solutions for all types of class action or other group litigations and can partner with law firms on book building exercises.

Woodsford is funding a number of class actions in Australia.
