The class action is being run on a no win – no fee basis. This means that group members will not have to pay any fees unless the case is won. If you are part of the action, you cannot be ordered to pay the other side’s costs if the action is unsuccessful.
All costs and risk will be fully underwritten by Omni Bridgeway (formerly IMF Bentham). There are no out of pocket costs or risks to you.
If the action is successful, the costs of the proceedings, which will include expert evidence fees, legal costs and interest, will be shared across the class.
If the case is won, Omni Bridgeway will be paid a commission from the settlement or judgment proceeds. The details of the costs and funding arrangements are set out in full in our Retainer and in Omni Bridgeway's litigation funding agreement which group members have received and had the opportunity to consider before joining the class action.
