Australia’s leading class action law firm, MBL pursues litigation for individuals, groups, shareholders and businesses who have suffered loss due to illegal corporate behaviour. The firm employs more than 1100 staff across Australia and has conducted all five of the largest class action cases in Australian legal history, resulting in more than $2.5 billion obtained on behalf of victims of corporate misconduct.

From the very beginning, MBL has stood for the protection of civil liberties and in defence of underprivileged groups. To this day, the firm continues to  fight diligently for its clients’ right to be free, safe, heard, and equal.
