KWM launches The Review: Class Actions in Australia 2013/2014

King & Wood Mallesons has released the third edition of its annual class actions report, examining key class action decisions and events over the past 18 months to highlight how the threat and reality of class actions have permanently altered the risk profile for Australian companies.

The Report also explores themes including the proper role of group members, the developments in insurance, the Court’s increasing scrutiny of class action settlements and the regulation of litigation funding.

KWM responds to the Financial System Inquiry Interim Report

Late last year the government announced its Financial System Inquiry (FSI), the first review of its kind in 16 years. The Inquiry will lay out a 'blueprint' for Australia's financial system over the next decade.

KWM has been actively engaging with the government throughout this process. In responding to the FSI Interim Report, KWM focused on the following areas:

  • RMB internationalisation; 
  • Superannuation and retirement products;
  • Stability: resolution powers and bail-in;
  • Consumer outcomes;
  • Retail bond market, equity and convertible markets and disclosure; 
  • Electronic documentation; and
  • Harmonisation of securities laws.
