Andre Lim

I am a resolute class actions litigator with over 8 years’ experience in commercial litigation and resolving complex commercial matters.

My approach to resolving disputes involves, whenever possible, providing “plain-English” legal advice, analysing legal situations from multiple perspectives and presenting practical solutions for clients.

I have experience with procuring litigation funding in a variety of class action contexts, including shareholder class actions, cases involving defective vehicles and breaches of the Australian Consumer Law and the Corporations Act.

In 2014, I had the honour of serving as Tipstaff to the Honourable Justice Christine Adamson in the Supreme Court of New South Wales which further cultivated my interest in persuasive legal writing, advocacy and litigation.

Who I work with and what I do

I have appeared as solicitor advocate at all NSW levels (Local, District, Supreme and the NSW Court of Appeal), and as instructing solicitor in the High Court of Australia.

In addition to prosecuting claims, I frequently write advices concerning class action litigation against: listed, multinational and domestic corporations; company directors & officers; high net worth individuals and government entities - with the ultimate aim of obtaining a just outcome for all affected.

The issues and claims covered in my work typically include: misleading or deceptive conduct; various forms of negligence; breaches of the Corporations Act and Australian Consumer law; complex issues concerning proportionate liability regimes and insurance; and navigating through grey or emerging areas of the law.

Where I studied

I have a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) from the University of Sydney.

What I like to do

In my spare time I enjoy playing board games and strategy games; following international football matches, particularly World Cup Qualification campaigns; camping; hiking; and watching historical dramas, crime and sci-fi shows.
