Mishcon de Reya are sponsoring and hosting, in association with our colleagues at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL), an event on "Bringing claims for mass databreaches" on March 3 2020.
Recent landmark cases such as Lloyd v Google LLC and Morrisons v Various Claimants show that the subject is one of keen interest not just to lawyers, but also to potential claimants, defendants and funders.
The event will bring together leading practitioners, policy makers and academics to discuss the complex legal issues arising from such claims. Experts will consider a range of issues including the evolving substantive law, procedural difficulties and funding considerations, cross-border questions and approaches to the assessment of harm for breaches of data protection and quantification of damages.
It will be chaired by the former Vice-President of the European Parliament, Diana Wallis, and speakers will include partner Adam Rose, Brian Johnston of Mason Hayes & Curran and Neil Purslow of Therium Capital Management Limited.
Further information about the event and how to purchase tickets is available on the BIICL website.
