The Emerging Landscape: Class Action Lawsuits and Litigation Funding

Join us for a FIRE Eveing panel session hosted with The Female Fraud Forum and Howden followed by drinks & nibbles! 

Changes to litigation funding in recent years have transformed the viability of class actions in the UK. Regularly utilised in jurisdictions such as the US and Australia, class actions have in recent years been a more prominent tool for mass claimants in the UK. This event will examine the changes to litigation funding and consider recent high profile class action cases, such as the Supreme Court decision in Lloyd v Google, which addressed the question of whether representative action was a suitable vehicle for claims in the sphere of data protection.
