The Federal Court has published a new Practice Note which relates to class actions being conducted in Australia.
There have also been a number of important developments since the original No Win No Fee agreement. We have provided all current clients and registrations with an updated No Win No Fee Agreement. Amendments have been made to several clauses of this agreement.
All new registrants will receive the updated No Win No Fee Agreement.

Bannister Law has commenced the First Class Action under Australian Consumer Law against Volkswagen Group Australia Pty Ltd (ACN 093117876) and Audi Australia Pty Ltd (ACN 077092776) in the Federal Court of Australia on 30th October 2015.
Bannister Law has already retained some of the most respected legal minds in the country to act on the representative actions against the VW Group in Australia. Bret Walker SC, Philip Bates, Dr Peter Cashman and Robert White constitute a formidable legal counsel team.
The action is for the class of all affected owners of the Volkswagen, Skoda, Audi, and Seat diesel vehicles with the 1.6L & 2.0L EA 189 engines. You are part of the class if you bought one of the affected models made between 2008 and 2015 and still have the vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation.
VW has confirmed that the defeat devices were fitted in diesel vehicles manufactured between 2008 and 2014, and subsequently sold in Australia. Volkswagon has since announced the recall of more than 90,000 VW and Audi vehicles sold in Australia in this period.
It remains unclear how VW will rectify the problem with ‘defeat devices’ and how this may impact affected vehicles.
