Lawyers linked to litigation funding face court censure: Bolitho v Banksia Securities Limited (No.4)  VSC 582
Jackson, Sheryl (2015) Lawyers linked to litigation funding face court censure: Bolitho v Banksia Securities Limited (No.4)  VSC 582. Proctor, 35(1), pp. 38-39.
In Bolitho v Banksia Securities Limited (No 4)  VSC 582 the Supreme Court of Victoria concluded that the proper administration of justice, including the appearance of justice, required that the lawyers representing the plaintiff in the group proceeding should be restrained from continuing to act for the plaintiff.
This Victorian case illustrates how courts are likely to respond when lawyers attempt to circumvent the prohibition on contingency fees through litigation funding in which they have a financial interest.
