The world of UK competition litigation and collective actions is rapidly developing and 2023 has seen an influx of highly important judgments. This includes the first UK judgment concerning a cartel case in which the claimants have made a multitude of cartel purchases, and significant further developments on the certification and funding of collective actions in the Competition Appeal Tribunal.

This short webinar will bring you up to speed on these developments, explain their impact on current and future cases, and provide tips for litigating future claims.

The webinar assumes a strong background knowledge in this area and will provide you with an update on four key competition litigation cases, namely:

  • Royal Mail Group Limited v DAF Trucks Limited and Others [2023]
  • Evans v Barclays Bank Plc [2023]
  • UK Trucks Claim Ltd v Stellantis NV (formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV) [2023]; and
  • R. (on the application of PACCAR Inc) v Competition Appeal Tribunal [2023]

What You Will Learn

The webinar will discuss the impact on future cases including pitfalls to watch out for when pursuing or defending competition litigation cases in future, including:

  • Expert independence at trial
  • Pleading and proving compound interest
  • Developments in the law of pass-on
  • Developments on the certification standard for collective actions (including opt in versus opt-out certification)
  • Procedural issues for appealing class certification decisions (judicial review versus appeal); and
  • Funding future class actions (and other claims) following the Supreme Court’s ruling that funding agreements can fall within the 2013 DBA regulations.
