Miranda Nagy is a Principal Lawyer in Maurice Blackburn's class actions department in Sydney. She is a leading lawyer in complex litigation around consumer protection and corporate accountability in Australia.
Currently she leads two class actions on behalf of over 400,000 superannuation fund members alleging breaches of trustee duties in the implementation of the MySuper reforms, the first against Colonial First State Investments Limited and against two trustees within the NAB Group. In recent years, she has also:
- led four consumer class actions against Cash Converters International Limited on behalf of payday loan borrowers in Queensland and NSW, which settled for $89m in total;
- led a class action against listed wine company Treasury Wine Estates, for breach of its continuous disclosure obligations, which settled in 2017 for $49 m;
- been responsible for the conduct and successful resolution of several securities class actions against listed companies as well as in a number of public interest cases including a class action on behalf of children unlawfully arrested by NSW police.
“Class action law is a very powerful mechanism for vindicating the rights of those who are most vulnerable, defending victims of mass wrongdoing and enforcing proper corporate behaviour. I have a strong conviction that the community should be able to expect our governments and the companies we deal with to comply with legal protections that have been hard fought for and won.”
