Litigation funding

The Victorian Law Reform Commission is reviewing litigation funding to ensure that litigants who are seeking to enforce their rights using the services of litigation funders and/or through group proceedings are not exposed to unfair risks or excessive costs.

The review will look at circumstances where plaintiffs win their case but end up with little or nothing because the money goes in legal fees.

The Commission will report by 30 March 2018.
