Richard Murgatroyd to speak at competition litigation conference

RBB's Richard Murgatroyd will join other leaders in the competition litigation field at this year's GCR litigation conference taking place in London on 5 October.

Richard will participate in the morning session 'Collective actions – blueprints, opt-out versus opt-in and case management' which will cover:

  • The requirement for a blueprint – what does this mean in terms of factual and expert evidence and has this shifted dial on certification? Mark McLaren’s op-out ro-ro claim, Liza Lovdahl Gormsen’s collective lawsuit against Meta and Rachael Kent’s claim against Apple.

  • How will having a blueprint impact on preparation for trial after certification?

  • Claim viability - opt-in versus opt-out – reviewing the impact of upcoming Court of Appeal decisions in Forex and Trucks appeals against CAT certification rulings, as well as the tribunal’s decision to deny certification in a claim brought by Commercial and Interregional Card Claims.

  • Competing claims – when and how to determine carriage – contrasting approaches in Forex and Trucks mass lawsuits compared to claims brought by Charles Arthur and Claudio Pollack against Google’s online advertising practices.
