The Experts In Data Breach Actions And Litigation
"Below is just a small selection of the main Data Breach Group Actions we are currently involved in..."
Data breach compensation claims have become more prominent during the years we have been representing victims on a No Win, No Fee basis. We started our first group / multi-party data action in 2015. Four years on and we are now representing victims in over 25 different major data breach actions.
For many years, people have sought our specialist legal advice and representation in claiming compensation for data breaches, data leaks and cyber hacks. As of early 2019, the average settlement we obtain on victims behalf in respect of major multi-party / group action data breach litigation is £8,500.00. As the frequency of major breaches increases and the impact from those breaches intensifies, we expect this figure to rise.
Our History And Experience Speaks For Itself
Since our first data breach case, we have been at the forefront of pioneering data breach compensation claims.
We are helping people with a wide range of group actions / multi-party actions, from serious breaches of medical information like the 56 Dean Street Clinic leak and the NHS Digital breach, to monumental cases like the Equifax data breach of 2017, the British Airways data breach and Ticketmaster data breach incidents in 2018, and serious breaches of confidence such as the We-Vibe data breach scandal.
In addition to our experience of multi-party claims arising from data breaches, other notable experience includes our appointment to the Steering Committee by the High Court of Justice to conduct what is set to be the biggest consumer action the UK has ever seen, and we have represented a substantial cohort of claimants in other Group Litigation Order actions. Aside from our work in multi-party claims, we also represent substantial numbers of individual claimants that range from medical data leaks to council and social services data breaches.
Some of those cases are particularly sensitive. As a firm of lawyers who also take forward large numbers of complex and serious compensation claims, we can offer a network of legal experts from our in-house staff to the barristers we have close relations with, and indeed the lawyers and firms we work with around the world.
The combination of expertise in data compensation and mass consumer actions allows you the confidence to know that we are dedicated to the fight for justice.
