Collective Certification in UK Competition Law – Commonality, Costs and Funding

Cento Veljanovski, Case Associates; Institute of Economic Affairs identifies Collective Certification in UK Competition Law – Commonality, Costs and Funding.

ABSTRACT: The certifications of the first two opt-out collective (class) actions - Gibson v. Pride Mobility Scooter and Merricks v MasterCard - were dismissed by the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) under the new UK competition law ‘class action’ regime. Here a critical assessment of the CAT’s two judgments is undertaken focusing on common issues, pass-on, distribution of damages, costs and funding of the emerging UK collective certification process.
