Welcome to the November edition of LDR Insights, in which we'll look at litigation funding post-Multiplex. What does the decision really mean for funders, and prospective and actual defendants?
We'll also look at Australia's likely accession to the Hague Service Convention, and why it's a good thing for Australian companies doing business with overseas entities.
Finally, if you're suing another for negligence, can you recover the costs of diverting your staff to deal with the consequences of the negligence? We'll examine the current state of the law in Australia on this important question.
