Claims

GetSwift is also facing action by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission related to the company’s disclosures, which will be heard before the class action goes to trial. The claim alleges GetSwift, its directors Bane Hunter and Joe Macdonald engaged and its former legal counsel Brett Eagle in misleading and deceptive conduct by filing a series of announcements to shareholders in 2017 that failed to disclose material information about agreements for the provision of its logistics services entered into with 13 different companies.

Johnson Winter & Slattery represents ASIC, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan represents GetSwift, Macdonald and Hunter. Piper Alderman represents Eagle.
