Over the course of 2023, the class action landscape in Australia has continued to evolve, marked by a heightened focus on corporate accountability, regulatory reforms, and an increasing number of high-profile cases shaping the future trajectory of the space.

Last year, we saw a number of actions against motor companies and landmark settlements, as well as resolutions from cases during COVID-19.

Lawyers Weekly editor Jerome Doraisamy said: “2023 was always shaping up to be a huge year in the class action space, and it didn’t disappoint. We look forward to following such litigation in the new year, and particularly what areas, issues or market forces will drive the filling of such proceedings.”
