What a Group Litigation or a Class action?
A group or class action is when a group of people with a common issue group together to sue an individual or organisation which have caused them loss or injustice. They come together to fight an issue as a collective which can mean more efficient and cost effective legal actions.
As Litigation Lawyers our job is to right the wrongs and give a voice to your right and power to your cause. By all working together towards your objectives we can make a much bigger impact.
What is a Group Litigation Order?
A group litigation order (GLO) is an order which is sent through the courts of England and Wales which allows a group of people with the same issue to act as a collective. It is the legal term for the process of grouping many people affected by the same issue. In some cases there can be one or more representative claimants who act as the lead case for others.
Our specialism lies in the following areas:
- Financial Miss-selling
- Defective products (product liability)
- Data Breaches (data and privacy)
- Major Incidents.
