Our history in data breach class actions
Our history when it comes to data breach class actions and multi-party cases is vast. Pursuing large group actions for privacy matters is a very recent thing in the UK, and the introduction of the GDPR in 2018 has made data protection more prominent as well.
Unlike many of the other firms that have only started trying to take these cases forward in the last couple of years, we have been doing so for many more years. This is important to point out, because we are aware of firms that lack proper experience who have made serious errors that have hindered their clients’ cases. We ourselves have received contact from firms asking us for assistance, having taken claims forward and not being clear on what to do next.
This could mean that some Claimants end up with a substandard service or may even lose their chance to claim, or fail to maximise their pay-out, as a result of poor representation.
Although we have years of experience representing people for civil cases, our first privacy cases date back to 2014. In 2015, we were one of the very few firms taking forward cases for victims of the infamous 56 Dean Street Clinic leak. Since then, we have taken forward many actions where we believe that there is a case to answer. We have taken forward over 45 different actions so far, and we will continue to fight for the rights of anyone who has been wronged in a group data event.
Why this is good to know
We do think that it is particularly important to discuss our experience when it comes to data breach class actions. It’s not about showing off, but about giving you the key insights into who we are, what we are about, and why you can be assured when instructing us for a case.
Many firms offer No Win, No Fee legal representation. Many are taking claims forward and claiming that they are specialists at what they do. But, for us, these are just words and phrases. What really matters for you, as a valued potential client looking to perhaps instruct us, is how you can be assured that we can help you. That’s why we tell you about our experience – because we think that is one of the most important elements.
Lots of firms will represent people in data breach class actions, but there are firms like us that have experience in senior roles. By order of the High Court of Justice, we have received Steering Committee appointments for some of the biggest and most pioneering actions the UK has ever seen. This includes the first GDPR Group Litigation Order (GLO) in England and Wales, the British Airways Data Event Action.
