The Growth of Class Action Litigation


  • 16:00-17:00
  • Tuesday 5th December
  • A panel of expert speakers from the UK's top law firms

Class actions have been on the rise in the UK in recent years. This event will explore the implications of this trend for businesses and individuals, and discuss the challenges and opportunities that class actions present.

The rise of class actions in the UK can be attributed to a number of factors, including the increasing complexity of commercial transactions, which makes it difficult for individuals to pursue claims on their own; the availability of litigation funding, which allows individuals to bring claims that they would not otherwise be able to afford; and the growing awareness of class actions among consumers and businesses.

The implications of class actions for businesses and individuals are significant. For businesses, class actions can be a major financial liability. For individuals, class actions can provide a way to obtain justice for wrongs that they would not otherwise be able to address.
