Class Actions

Class Actions

Levitt Robinson Solicitors boasts one of Australia’s most successful and widely respected class action practice groups.


We are at the cutting edge of this growing area of law, and in 2014 were named by the Australian Financial Review as one of six “smaller but serious class action entrants” taking on larger and well-known firms.


Class actions allow “classes” of people with similar legal claims against the same defendant to group their multiple claims together into a single action.

What we offer 

For group members in a potential class action often, trying to get their lawyers to take positive steps to advance the action can feel like a slow merry-go-round. 


With some of the country’s most experienced class action lawyers, Levitt Robinson is well equipped to advise you and other members of your “class” on your legal position, your rights and obligations, the appropriate funding model, and all of your options for getting a result. 


Albert Einstein once said that “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”  At Levitt Robinson, we can explain the class action process and the funding alternatives simply to you because we are experts in this area of law.

Unique funding model

At Levitt Robinson, we can offer an alternative to litigation funding: our unique funding model.

​We also have strong relationships with commercial litigation funders, and we have a record of conducting class actions on a “no win, no fee” basis.


In December 2013, Levitt Robinson negotiated an $82.5 million settlement for a class action against Macquarie Bank and, thanks to our unique model, achieved the greatest return of a damages award to group members for a class action that size in Australian legal history.
