Class Actions and Collective Redress

Referent Beschreibung

The last twelve months have seen a dramatic rise in collective actions across Europe. In March 2007 the Commissioner for Consumer Protection, Meglena Kuneva announced “I do not have in mind the US type of class action. This is not a John Grisham story. We have another, European, narrative….” But with the arrival of US plaintiff Bar firms in the UK, how different an animal will they be?LexisNexis Butterworths is delighted to welcome an eminent international speaker panel who will highlight the implications of the new forms of redress for the European market. Chaired by Mitchell A. Lowenthal the conference will draw on the North American experience of class actions from both a US and Canadian perspective and analyse how the long-arm jurisdiction of the US courts impacts on potential European plaintiffs.Attending this prestigious event will enable you to answer the following key questions:

  • What is the European agenda for encouraging greater access to justice?
  • What are the available funding models in different European jurisdictions?
  • What effect does the availability of disclosure, interim remedies and calculation of damages have on choice of forum?
  • What impact will the Royal Dutch Shell settlement agreement have on US securities litigation?
  • Does the JJB Sports case herald a new era for competition collective claims?
