Phi Finney McDonald is a specialist collective and complex litigation law firm.

We practice in complex and large-scale litigation, with a focus on shareholder class actions. The firm’s directors have over thirty years of specialist collective actions experience.

Phi Finney McDonald’s strong social conscience influences every aspect of our practice. This includes the types of claims we take on, how we treat our clients, and how we operate as a business. We believe in transparent and ethical corporate governance, social justice, and human rights. We act for those harmed by corporate or government misconduct, rather than the wrongdoers.

Strong individual claims are often too small to warrant legal costs and litigation risk. Aggregating many small individual claims into a collective action levels the playing field. It allows us to enlist the best barristers and experts to our clients’ cause, and to divide the cost over a larger pool of damages. Our clients benefit from the best representation at a fraction of what it would have cost to litigate individually. It allows our clients to pursue claims they would otherwise have abandoned.

Our collective actions expertise includes:

  • shareholder and securities investment
  • data protection and privacy
  • competition and antitrust
  • consumer law and product liability
  • financial mis-selling and investment fraud
  • environmental damage and human rights

We are creative, strategic, and solve legal and commercial problems quickly. We increase our clients’ compensation whilst managing the risks of litigation. We do not outsource litigation strategy or shift accountability.

We constantly reflect on how we could perform work faster and better, and streamline our processes and procedures. If we do not have the right tools or technology, then we acquire or develop it. We aim never to make the same mistake twice, and leverage every lesson learned across our entire practice.
