Group Litigation

Litigation can be a stressful experience, particularly if you are taking action against a large corporate body that has the resources and expertise to defend a claim to trial and beyond. Individuals are often made to feel like the ‘underdog’ in these situations and sometimes the risks associated with litigation can deter those with a valid claim from pursuing legal action.

Group Litigation is becoming more common in the UK as a means of individual claimants with similar complaints and claims joining together to take collective action against large corporations.

By taking action as a group, the risks and costs of court proceedings are reduced, as they are shared amongst all members of the group. This therefore enables the individuals within the group to compete on an even playing field with the wrongdoer.

Group litigation also permits and encourages multiple claimants to share their knowledge and legal documentation, which can assist in strengthening the claim.

This is therefore an invaluable way to access justice, particularly for those who may have previously been discouraged from doing so. History has taught us that there is strength in numbers and it can be the same for litigation.
