Competition Litigation: panel discussion

3rd March 2022 @ 9:00am to 5:30pm


The landscape for class actions in the UK is growing and evolving, with recent decisions in Lloyd v Google (currently the subject of an appeal to the Supreme Court) and Merricks v Mastercard. This discussion considers the key tactical battlegrounds for claimants and defendants in group actions as to the choice of collective action regime, using these cases to explain the issues: What are the costs and benefits of using the opt-out mechanism? How might these decisions shape the collective action framework more broadly (including outside of the competition sector)? How might the procedural regime impact/be impacted by the litigation funding market? How likely is reform of the traditional
Group Litigation Order class actions regime?

Attendance is not limited to LSLA members. An email will be sent confirming your place a few days before the event. The cost is £20 per event or £95 for all five (nonmembers £25 or £120). Our events usually sell out, so please apply early.

The LSLA lectures will start at 6 p.m. All events will last approximately one hour, to include a period for questions at the end, and will be followed by drinks.
