Businessman Clive Palmer has used his latest court appearance to lash out at the high costs of Australia's legal system, claiming the wealthy are given unequal access to justice.

Arriving at the Federal Court in Brisbane to face further questions over the collapse of Queensland Nickel, Mr Palmer, who is involved in numerous legal disputes, had a staff member read a statement on his behalf highlighting the high costs for legal representation.

"Australians need not only to be equal before the law but to be equal before the courts," he said.

"How can they have this and how can justice be served when one party is able to fund expensive litigation while another can't afford any representation to all?"
