Class actions

People and businesses can group together to introduce a claim when they have something to demand from the government or from a common opponent.

Class actions are not limited to financial cases, but may relate to a variety of different matters, including food, cars or drugs. Companies can also group together, for instance, when they try to oppose road works that hinder their operations.

We’ve built a lot of experience over the last decade in cases involving people or companies grouping together, some of them getting the media’s attention, but others discreetly arranged under the pressure of our arguments.

Although no specific legislation yet exists in our region for class action suits, we have developed special techniques to guide such matters both legally and administratively in the right direction.

Legislation will certainly eventually come, but in the meantime we will continue to achieve results both before the courts and in confidential agreements.
