Plaster Cladding class action fully funded

Plaster Cladding class action fully funded

In light of recent media reports on James Hardie, Adina Thorn of Adina Thorn Lawyers today confirmed that those owners of leaky homes participating in the Plaster Cladding class action managed by Adina Thorn Lawyers would face no out of pocket expenses as a result of the process.

She says that investment funds advised by one of the world’s largest funders, UK-based Harbour Litigation Funders, will be meeting the litigation costs irrespective of the outcome in return for gaining a share of any damages secured.

“With their support we have been able to put together a strong legal team made up of solicitors, barristers, and QCs that we believe is essential to mount a successful action against such a large company, backed of course by a team of building industry experts.

“We have also had an amazing response since we announced the class action with more than 1500 building owners having registered their interest with us.

“Currently we are still in the process of finalising those who are eligible to participate, given the need to ensure the viability of individual claimants, which we expect to be the second-largest class action ever in New Zealand.”

She says that while some notices have already been send out to claimants it is still not too late for people to register online at www.goodcladding.co.nz.
