Podcast: Litigation revolution
In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Tom Lodewyke is joined by Jason Betts, class action partner at Herbert Smith Freehills; and John Walker, CEO of litigation funding company Investor Claim Partner (ICP).
Jason and John discuss how the Australian class action regime has developed over the last 25 years, as well as sharing their perspectives on the best way for it to evolve into the future.
They explore issues including closed classes, contingency fees and regulation, and shed light on the competing interests that make class actions such a complex area of the law.
