UK Class Action Regime Breaks Ground With 1st Opt-In Suit: Caroline Harbord speaks to Law360

Dispute Resolution Partner, Caroline Harbord, has been quoted in the Law360 article entitled 'UK Class Action Regime Breaks Ground With 1st Opt-In Suit'.

An antitrust tribunal has given the go-head for a £2billion claim over a price-fixing cartel, granting the U.K.'s first ever opt-in class action.

Harbord said "while standalone opt-in applications may be made in specific circumstances, such as a trade body with a significant and unusually motivated membership that has signed up for the claim, these circumstances are quite unusual."
