THE BIGGEST SETTLEMENTS

Maurice Blackburn has Australia’s most successful and experienced class actions team, having recovered more than $2.6 billion - or more than 66 per cent of all Australian class action recoveries since the regime was introduced in 1992. We have secured the nation’s largest class action settlements and the only listed securities class action recoveries in excess of $100 million, which we have done seven times now.
