Risks & Opportunities outside the U.S. and Canada
The global securities litigation landscape continues to grow and evolve. We continue to see an uptick in activity in jurisdictions like Japan, UK and Dutch Foundation and a number of emerging jurisdictions like Taiwan. Within jurisdictions that have been consistently active, like Australia, we’re seeing more parties involved (litigation funders, law firms, investment recovery firms), as well as new and inventive causes of action.

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the class action regime into the Australian Federal Court System. Since the inclusion of Part IVA of the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976 in 1992, the concept of representative proceedings has gone through several evolutionary processes and procedures for class action lawsuits look much different today than they did in its original iteration.
Australia is among the most active jurisdictions outside of the US and Canada. To date, class actions there have recovered more than $1.86 billion for investors.
