In this special episode, The Lawyers Weekly Show is joined by Augusta Ventures managing director Neill Brennan and Herbert Smith Freehills partner Jason Betts for two very different perspectives on the future of class action litigation in Australia and its financial backers.

In this episode our guests discuss:

  • How Australian litigation funding compares internationally
  • Key reform and regulation debates affecting class actions
  • Changing business models, fee structures and the impact on the profession
  • How corporate players are responding to a shifting landscape


This episode is brought to you by Augusta Ventures.
