Baker McKenzie's Global Class Actions: Around The World is an interactive site which provides at-a-glance information on the key characteristics of class action mechanisms in more than 25 countries. It includes details of recent enforcement (updated regularly) and contacts in each jurisdiction who can provide further information.
With a few clicks, our navigator allows you to compare the position on:
- Mechanisms: whether opt in; opt out; representative bodies only
- Damages available, claimed and awarded
- Contribution as between defendants
- Scope of disclosure
- Whether waivers are enforceable against consumers
You can customize your enquiry and quickly create a comparison of the jurisdictions and criteria in which you're interested. This allows you to access information in infographic and tabular form tailored to your needs.
