Product Description

World Class Actions - A Guide to Group and Representative Actions around the Globe.

A practical guide for attorneys and their clients on the procedures available for class, group, and representative actions throughout the world. Provides world-wide jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction coverage of the class action, group, collective, derivative, and other representative action procedures. Offers guidance from the perspective of international attorneys practicing in foreign jurisdictions and the art of counseling and representing clients in international litigation. Covers a variety of topics related to transnational and multi-jurisdictional class actions brought in the United States that involve international issues and interests. Chapters introduce key books, treatises, articles, or other reference materials to foster further research. Class action and other group litigation procedures are increasingly being adopted in jurisdictions throughout the world, as more countries deal with the realities of increased globalization and access to information. As a result, attorneys and their clients face the ever-expanding prospect of a class or group action outside their home jurisdictions.

Each chapter offers practice tips and cultural insights helpful to an attorney or litigant facing a dispute in a particular part of the world. Many of the chapters introduce key books, treatises, articles, or other reference materials to foster further research. Its focus on international class and group litigation law from a practitioner's perspective makes World Class Actions an essential guide for the lawyer or client.
