Herbert Smith Freehills has launched a series of short guides to class actions in England and Wales. The first two editions, (i) Overview of class actions in the English courts and (ii) Group Litigation Orders (GLOs), have been published here. Future editions in the series will also be posted on that page.
These topics have also been discussed in a webinar presented today by Damien Byrne Hill, Gregg Rowan, Donny Surtani and Maura McIntosh, looking at how class actions are brought in the English courts, the types of claim that tend to be brought, and the outlook for the future, as well as issues relating to costs and funding.
Clients and contacts of the firm can register to access the archived version by contacting Jane Webber.
