We have seen a significant number of class action claims arising from alleged securities law violations, misselling in the financial services sector, shareholder activism, antitrust follow-on damages, and bankruptcy cases.
We offer our clients a significant and competitive advantage in this area through our global footprint – we have experience in virtually every significant jurisdiction in handling and resolving class actions. Experience shows that this global footprint can be very effective for our clients as the risk of class actions spreads across Europe and elsewhere.
Our team consists of litigation, securities, competition and other experts from across our global practice. Leading our team is specialist Patricia M. Hynes, who, as an ex-leader of the plaintiffs' class action bar, offers a unique insight into class action cases. In addition, we have one of the leading litigation teams in the Netherlands, which is developing into an important forum for the (international) collective settlement of mass claims.
