This highly-awaited second edition of Multi-Party Actions represents an updated, authoritative text on various collective action mechanisms in the civil procedure of England and Wales. Written by leading practitioners and academics, the text boasts new academic and policy analysis, as well as coverage of the new competition damages mechanisms and fresh collections of cases organised by subject matter.

The UK is one of the leading jurisdictions where alternatives to collective actions have been developed .This edition includes coverage of regulatory redress mechanisms, collective ADR arrangements, and the practice of various UK ombudsmen. New UK legislation is covered, including the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and associated arrangements for competition law collective actions and redress scheme approvals. The book analyses the recent general policy developments in European policy on 'collective redress' and 'collective actions' which have emerged in response to the European Commission's 2013 recommendations.

Both litigation practitioners and civil procedure academics will find this unique and extensive collection of case studies to be a practical and invaluable resource.
