The mass provision of goods and services, the success of online delivery channels and the increasing power of big data means that the likelihood of commercial mistakes causing damage to thousands or even millions is greater than ever. Consequently, group litigation is on the rise.
Our team of specialist litigators are well placed to help develop and pursue group litigation procedures of all types. We have detailed experience of GLOs, representative actions, test cases and competition follow-on litigation with particular expertise in claims arising out of financial products, data issues and regulatory breaches. Our clients range from retail investors and SMEs, to high net worth individuals and institutions, all of whom for various reasons have seen the benefits of litigating as part of a group, often backed by litigation funding and ATE insurance.
Due to the size and breadth of our overall litigation practice and the depth of our relationships with funders, brokers and ATE insurers, we are well placed to negotiate and structure funding for even the most complex group action. We are connected with the leading chambers, allowing us access to the finest legal and procedural minds; a huge benefit to those who are trying to develop and launch novel and complex claims.
