QBE and Lloyds Class Actions
We have already commenced class actions against QBE and certain underwriters at Lloyds regarding their business interruption insurance policies. The class actions are funded by a litigation funder, Omni Bridgeway.
Omni Bridgeway’s finance and expertise is assisting policyholders to recover their losses under their insurance policies. Each class action is being funded as a registered management investment scheme in accordance with new funded class action regulations introduced by the Australian government in 2020. If you are an eligible affected group member in one of the class actions, you can apply to become a member of the litigation funding scheme and participate in the class action by completing and returning the Application Form which is set out in the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). A copy of the PDS for each scheme is available on Omni Bridgeway’s website which can be accessed via Omni Bridgeway’s business interruption insurance class actions page here.
Gordon Legal and Berrill & Watson have issued class actions on behalf of persons who held business interruption insurance with QBE and Lloyds (Jewellery and Gem Merchants).
Omni Bridgeway is presently providing funding for two class actions for policyholder losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Both cases are being run jointly by Gordon Legal and Berrill & Watson.
Gordon Legal is a leading class action law firm and Berrill & Watson is a specialist insurance law firm.
