Synopsis: Having been on the horizon for two decades, it appears that the ‘class action’ – in all its forms – may finally have arrived in the English courts. We acted in the recent ground-breaking business interruption insurance test case, the first time that the Financial Markets Test Case Scheme has been used. We are also acting in some of the most high-profile competition collective proceedings, and advising clients in relation to claims arising from transnational torts and data breaches. Drawing on this experience, we will offer insights into group litigation from the defendant’s perspective and provide practical guidance on preparing for, and dealing with, multi-claimant actions. This webinar will focus on key practical advice relating to: - collective proceedings in the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal; - group actions in relation to data breaches and transnational tort litigation; - the use of the Financial Markets Test Case Scheme.

This seminar qualifies for 1 CPD point/s
