Litigation Lending has combined forces with Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), to support their public interest litigation.

The Adverse Costs Order Guarantee Fund was established by PIAC last year to ensure public interest cases can go ahead in circumstances where the risk of an adverse costs order would discourage clients from proceeding with their case. So far $120,000 has been raised, with Litigation Lending in good company among Vannin, Woodsford and Investor Claim Partner who have also contributed to the fund.

Under the scheme, clients will be indemnified so that they can go ahead with their cases without having to risk their assets or income.

‘It’s great to see the development of a culture of support for social justice among litigation funders, and we congratulate our project partners on leading the way.’ said PIAC CEO, Jonathon Hunyor. (pictured right with Senior Litigation Manager Kim May) Public interest litigation to be considered by the fund will include human rights, discrimination and police accountability cases.

We look forward to a bright and promising future with PIAC over the years to come.

Stolen Generations Class Action (Northern Territory)

Class action launched against the Commonwealth Government on behalf of members of the Stolen Generations in the Northern Territory who were forcibly removed from their families as children. Although a formal apology has been made, the Commonwealth has refused to pay compensation to members of the Stolen Generation in the Northern Territory, despite their own recommendation to do so. All other states with similar policies have paid compensation to those affected.

LLS is pleased to be partnering with Shine Lawyers to continue to support Australia’s First Nations people to seek compensation for past injustices.
