  • Competition Litigation: panel discussion

    Competition Litigation: panel discussion

    3rd March 2022

    Online

    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?
