Representative or class actions continue to grow and develop in New Zealand and around the globe. In this update, we consider some of these developments and summarise them in our infographic linked below. The update also considers the Law Commission's current review of representative or class actions in New Zealand and possible reforms, with such reforms potentially requiring continued public input.
We have, and continue to be, actively involved in a number of class action proceedings, and in the reform process. We have a number of leading class action lawyers available to assist in New Zealand and international class actions, who are experienced in acting for both plaintiffs and defendants.
