Class action risk continues to increase in Australia and is becoming more complex than ever before
Patrick & Associates has been involved in some of the largest class actions in Australia. We have acted for both classes of plaintiffs, and defendants.
We are particularly experienced in assisting individuals in responding to the threat of class actions and regulatory investigations. We assist both the individuals and the organisations who they work with to implement a considered and reasoned response to any allegations made. This includes issues regarding insurance (where we specialise in the assessment of indemnity and coverage), the ongoing employment or business relationship, and the protection of reputational concerns.
If you or your organisation is potentially about to be embroiled in a piece of litigation, then it is critical to use all efforts to protect yourself as quickly as possible.
We have all of the necessary experience to provide you with this advice.
In most instances, the legal risks must be managed simultaneously with the protection of the ongoing business.
In particular, we have acted for the plaintiffs in Walsh v Worley Parsons Limited, and for individual directors in ACCC v ANZ Bank Limited and the RCR Tomlinson class action.
