Class actions and major group litigation can be seismic events, not only for the parties, but also whole industries and parts of society. The Class Actions Law Review (6th edition) explains the relevant procedures, developments and factors in play in some of the leading jurisdictions for class actions and group litigation.
The potential impact means class actions are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope. The sixth edition of The Class Actions Law Review provides practitioners and clients with a concise overview of the relevant procedures, developments and factors in play in some of the world’s leading jurisdictions for class actions and group litigation.
