On 23 October 2018, the Supreme Court of New South Wales approved the $28.5 million settlement of the Provident Capital class action.

Centro

In the biggest shareholder class action settlement in Australian history, Slater and Gordon won compensation for about 5,000 mainly ‘mum and dad’ retail investors in the retail property group, Centro.

The claim involved allegations that Centro and its auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers, had misled shareholders by failing to disclose billions of dollars of soon to expire debt.

When it settled in May 2012, our clients shared in a $50 million payment from the company and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
