Lawyers Weekly, in partnership with Maurice Blackburn, is pleased to present a two-part episode exploring all things class actions in 2020 and beyond.

In the first part of this conversation, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Maurice Blackburn national head of class actions Andrew Watson to discuss where the parliamentary inquiry into litigation funding and industry regulation is at, the position of plaintiff firms with regards to that inquiry, and what issues need to be addressed as the new year approaches. 


The pair also discuss Mr Watson’s vocational journey and what work as a plaintiff lawyer in the class actions space means to him.

Be sure to tune in for the second half of this conversation next week!
