Last month the Queensland Government announced that the State would soon be falling into line with a number of other jurisdictions in introducing rules to facilitate class action litigation in Queensland.

It seems likely that it soon will be easier for class action litigation to be brought and managed in Queensland Courts.

The increase in class action litigation in Australia poses a real risk for many businesses.

Knowing the fundamentals of class action litigation and how it may affect a business is essential for corporate counsel.

In this session the head of our litigation and dispute resolution group, Rocco Russo, will give a brief outline of some of the essential aspects of class action litigation and the possible impacts for business.

Andrew Charles, from international litigation funder IMF Bentham, will discuss the type of claims that have been brought to date and his thoughts on actions that businesses might face in the future. Having managed many class action claims across Australia over the last 10 years, Andrew is in a position to give unique and valuable insight into how these claims are pursued.

We hope you will be able to join us.
