Book Description

Sept. 14 2012 0199730245 978-0199730247
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. World Class Actions: A Guide to Group and Representative Actions around the Globe is a guide for attorneys and their clients on the procedures available for class, group, and representative actions throughout the world. It helps lawyers navigate and develop strategies for litigation and risk management in the course of doing business abroad, or even in doing business locally in a way that impacts interests abroad. Part I of the book provides a jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction survey of the class action, group, collective, derivative, and other representative action procedures available across the globe. Each chapter is written from a local perspective, by an attorney familiar with the laws, best practices, legal climate, and culture of the jurisdiction. Part II provides guidance from the perspective of international attorneys practicing in foreign jurisdictions and the art of counseling and representing clients in international litigation. It also covers a variety of topics related to transnational, multi-jurisdictional, and class or collective actions that involve international issues and interests. 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.

Product Description


"As technology effectively shrinks both the physical and legal worlds, lawyers must increasingly view disputes from a global perspective. In World Class Actions, Paul Karlsgodt and his expert contributors provide a fine overview of class action litigation around the world. This book identifies a gap in the literature and fills it nicely."
--Mark Herrmann
Vice President and Chief Counsel - Litigation, Aon
Author, The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law

"Industrialization, globalization and the explosive evolution of mass and social media has changed the business world into a global village. With this comes the risk of global harm and global litigation. World Class Actions offers lawyers and their clients an effective, reliable road map through the complicated and constantly changing terrain of global class-action litigation."
--Prof. Dr. Ianika N. Tzankova
Professor of Comparative Mass Litigation, Tilburg University
Attorney-at-law, NautaDutilh N.V.

"World Class Actions is a comprehensive and practical look at everything a class-action litigator needs to know about mass litigation in other countries. In an increasingly globalized world, this is a book no international lawyer should be without."
--Andrew J. Trask, McGuireWoods London LLP, co-author of The Class Action Playbook

"Provides a helpful introduction to the incredibly complex and varied topic of collective actions around the world. It will serve as a valuable resource for lawyers and other professionals as they attempt to navigate and develop strategies for litigation and risk management while doing business abroad. This book will be particularly valuable for those whose jobs require them to understand and manage the litigation risks their clients must attempt to manage in their operations around the world. I highly recommend this book."
--Kevin M. LaCroix, The D&O Diary

"For practitioners whose clients have business interests overseas, this book could prove invaluable in helping navigate the shoals of unfamiliar legal systems."
--D. Matt Allen, Classified: Carlton Fields' Class Action Blog
