Hastings International and Comparative Law Review


Paul von Nessen


This article considers recent Australian case law which will enhance the ability of Australian shareholders to pursue remedies against their companies for improper disclosure in relation to the acquisition of securities. The article further observes that, in contrast to the United States legal environment, actions which may be used to pursue such securities claims have been encouraged in Australia in recent years by the adoption of effective class action procedures and the relaxation of litigation funding rules.
