The Representative Actions Directive - a class action for Europe?

Event Details

This webinar will examine the recently-adopted EU Representative Actions Directive and consider its impact on cross-border and domestic collective redress actions across Europe. A roster of leading commentators will review the features of this new instrument and address how it is likely to affect the litigation landscape across Europe in respect of group claims. Although the Directive is not applicable to the UK, the future of collective redress in the UK will also be considered by the speakers.
