7-ELEVEN CLASS ACTION
NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE CONTROL.
SIGN A FUNDING AGREEMENT.
BECOME A CLIENT OF LEVITT ROBINSON SOLICITORS.
At a time when so much seems beyond your control, Class PR is here to urge you to play your part in securing
7-Eleven franchisees the compensation they deserve.
THERE REALLY IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS.
The larger and more unified the group of franchisees in the lead up to the September 2021 trial, the more pressure on
Clients of Levitt Robinson are in the strongest position when it comes to the advancement of franchisees’ interests, both individually and collectively. You will stay up to date with important dates, deadlines and milestones in the Class Action.
THE ACTION IS FULLY FUNDED BY A THIRD-PARTY LITIGATION FUNDER.
A litigation funder is paying the upfront costs of the case and the security for costs. This means you do not have to pay any costs upfront, including any legal fees of Levitt Robinson or any costs of 7-Eleven if the Class Action is unsuccessful. The Funder covers all these costs and only gets his costs back if the Class Action succeeds, or there is a settlement.
The Funder is doing this because under the Funding Agreement, the Funder gets 35% of any amount received if the Class Action succeeds, or there is a settlement.
THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS ARE AVAILABLE TO LEVITT ROBINSON CLIENTS ONLY.
YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS AND PARTICULAR LOSSES WILL BE THE SUBJECT OF SPECIAL ATTENTION BEFORE THE COURT-ORDERED MEDIATION.
Levitt Robinson will assist clients to make their individual claims and quantify their losses in preparation for the court ordered mediation, which is scheduled to take place before March 31, 2021.
YOU WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SPECIALIST LEGAL ADVICE ON ALL 7-ELEVEN MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROCEEDINGS.
THE COST OF THE ADVICE IS SUBSUMED WITHIN THE COST OF THE PROCEEDINGS, PAID FOR BY THE FUNDER.
To advise you on all aspects of the Class Action as it relates to your franchise; and
To act on any individual disputes between you and 7-Eleven that arise as a result of your involvement in the Class Action at no out of pocket cost to you. This is because these matters are part of the cost of running the proceedings, which are covered by the funder.
OTHER FACTORS TO CONSIDER.
CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH YOU WILL BE IDENTIFIED TO 7-ELEVEN.
Your identity will not be disclosed by Levitt Robinson to 7-Eleven unless you consent, for example when it is time to make a claim for your individual damages (the amount of compensation owing to you).
In order to make a claim for compensation, all group members (not just Levitt Robinson clients), will need to identify themselves so that 7-Eleven can make its own assessment of their claim and so that it knows who it is being asked to pay compensation to.
THERE IS NO ACTIVE PARTICIPATION REQUIRED.
Group members are not required to actively participate in the initial trial of the proceedings. Once you sign a funding agreement you can sit back and relax, secure in the knowledge that Levitt Robinson and a team of Australia’s best legal minds have you covered.
FUNDING EQUALISATION ORDERS.
If the Class Action succeeds or a settlement is reached, the financial benefit paid by 7-Eleven will be distributed to group members. Funding equalisation orders are designed to ensure “free-riders” pay their way – those individuals who did not contribute to the proceedings and yet stand to benefit from its outcome.
In all likelihood, a funding equalisation order will be sought, which means that group members who do not sign a funding agreement may still be required to contribute proportionately to the funding costs payable by those who signed a funding agreement. In other words, those who don’t sign a funding agreement would still pay the same proportion to the Funder as those who do sign.
