Written for plaintiffs' lawyers who are involved, or want to become involved, in group actions, this book explains the procedural complexity that lies at the heart of running a multi-party action. It takes readers through the whole process and the mechanics, starting with an overview of the conceptual issues and history of group actions, and then covering pre-action considerations before dealing with funding, deciding the forum, commencing proceedings, and the trial itself.
The authors, all practitioners in this field, also look at the particular relevance of issues such as handling the media and the use of technology, and a chapter is devoted to discussion of the future of multi-party actions.
