Group litigation: Push and pull factors for group litigation and what to expect in the coming years

17 May
09:00 - 10:00

This session focuses on the KC and solicitors’ views of group actions in the UK, and we will also be discussing the role of litigation funders and whether there is (or should be) a move to a more US-style class action system. We have some provocative topics on the table, including whether the procedural landscape and funding market is overly generous to claimants (or whether it is striking just the right balance), and share thoughts on how the system might develop in future to manage some of the currently perceived areas of challenge. We will compare and contrast with group litigation regimes in other jurisdictions, and invite questions from the floor directed at our KCs and solicitors leading some of the biggest group actions at the moment.
