Adina Thorn Lawyers has experience in bringing large class actions. Class actions involve bringing together a large number of people who have suffered similar harm to bring a claim against a large company or organisation.
We have developed sophisticated systems for managing classes. This is necessary as a lot of information needs to be collated from the individual plaintiffs and we ensure the process is straight-forward and plaintiffs are regularly informed of progress. In addition to our in-house legal expertise, we have relationships with Senior Counsel and industry experts who may assist in ensuring a strong, robust claim is brought.
Class actions can be very effective in instances where individual losses may be small relative to the cost of litigation. The simple reality is that litigation can be expensive. Once a group bands together, the economics change considerably and bringing a claim may be possible.
We have working relationships with litigation funders who may be involved to provide financial backing for the claim.
If you know of a matter that could lend itself to being brought as a class action (either an existing or a new claim), please contact Adina directly.
