In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Jerome Doraisamy is
joined by Herbert Smith Freehills partner, Jason Betts.
Earlier this year, the Australian Law Reform Commission submitted its report on class action proceedings to federal parliament. Titled, "Integrity, Fairness and Efficiency - Class Action Proceedings and Third-Party Litigation Funders", the report considered whether and to what extent class actions and litigation funders should be subject to regulation, and how adequate current regulation is. Jerome and Jason discuss the report's findings and recommendations from the perspective of defendants, with Jason leaning on his and his firm's experience representing defendants in such proceedings.
