In our latest article as part of our litigation funding series, we consider the decision of the Victorian Supreme Court to award a group cost order (GCO).

Although it is perhaps too early to be certain whether GCOs will work as the legislature intends (and they are currently only available in Victoria) there are a number of benefits to GCOs which we also discuss in more detail alongside this decision.  To read our third article in the series, see here.

In our previous articles we consider Australia’s litigation funding reforms and the recent court decision in Arrium where the court upheld the examination rights of eligible applicants.
