Litigation Funders

Class Action Reform

In May 2020 the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services launched an inquiry into Litigation funding and the regulation of the class action industry.

Under the changes, litigation funders are now required to hold an Australian Financial Services Licence, strengthening scrutiny from the corporate watchdog, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

The economics of class actions: ‘book building’, free riders, common fund orders and funding equalisation orders.

  • Money Max, 2016 – The Common Fund Order is born

The decision of Money Max Int Pty Ltd (Trustee) v QBE Insurance Group Limited (2016) meant that Common Fund Orders (CFOs) could be made at the beginning of proceedings under Federal Court of Australia Act (s 33ZF) and its State-based equivalents.

Common fund orders were a way for courts to ensure economic viability of class action lawsuits and require all group members to contribute to the litigation funder a percentage of their entitlement under any settlement or judgment, whether or not the group member had entered into a funding agreement with the funder.

  • Brewster, 2019 – The death of the Common Fund Order?

The High Court in Australia BMW Australia Ltd v Brewster; Westpac Banking Corporation v Lenthall [2019] HCA 45, 2019, held that common fund orders are not permissible under s 33ZF of the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976 (Cth) (“FCA Act”) or its New South Wales equivalent, s 183 of the Civil Procedure Act 2005 (NSW) (“CP Act”).

Consequently, absent any statutory intervention, common fund orders of this kind will no longer feature in the Australian class action landscape.

  • Consequences of Brewster, a return to a 2016, pre-Money Max environment.

Bookbuilding is back.

Bookbuilding is the practice of seeking to sign individual funding agreements with as many group members as possible (a process known as “book-building”). Group members are asked to sign a funding agreement which lists the percentage commission payable to the funder if the action succeeds.

Sufficient group participation is necessary to ensure economic viability of litigation funding as an investment proposition.
