In April 2018, the Association of Litigation Funders of Australia was established. LLS was a founder member of this Association along with Augusta Ventures, Balance Legal, Grosvenor Litigation Services, Investor Claim Partners and Vannin Capital. The Association has appointed LLS CEO Stuart Price as the inaugural CEO and Managing Director of the Association.

Mr Price said “The commencement of an Association of Litigation Funders in Australia is an important milestone to reach. This demonstrates the importance and willingness of the industry to actively engage with the government, legislators, regulators and other policy makers to shape the regulatory environment for litigation funding in Australia. It is a privilege to work with the litigation funders active in Australia particularly at a time where there are active reviews underway on the industry and the way it operates.”
