Will completed the first year of his training with Shazia Yamin in the international group litigation department, working on vehicle emissions claims arising from the dieselgate scandal, which affected 11 million vehicles worldwide. He was part of the team that reached a £193m out of court settlement in the Volkswagen NOx Emissions Group Litigation in May 2022.
Will joined Leigh Day’s Manchester office in 2018 to work on equal pay claims against Asda Stores Ltd. He later transferred to the London office to assist in claims of age discrimination and victimisation arising from changes to public sector pension schemes, which reached settlement at the end of 2021.
What our clients say
Leigh Day handled a class action case against VW for the Diesel Scandal. They secured a substantial out of court settlement for me that far exceeded my expectations. They kept me updated at every step of a long drawn out case and gave me good advice. A top professional law firm.
