We’re not afraid to take on difficult and challenging cases involving medical negligence, serious personal injuries, discrimination in the workplace, defective products and human rights abuses in this country and overseas.
About the team
Our Consumer Law (Multi-party Actions) and Human Rights (data protection) team are currently working on a number of notable group claims including claims against car emissions on behalf of car owners who allege ‘defeat devices’ were fitted on some of their diesel cars and a number of group actions relating to data breaches on behalf of clients who were affected by the unauthorised disclosure of their personal information.
