Governance Automotive Anti-trust / Competition Class Action Collective Redress Group Litigation

Road Haulage Association Limited

The Case

Therium funded collective proceedings brought by Road Haulage Association Limited acting as representative on behalf of its members and other truck purchasers before the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) against European truck manufacturers found by the European Commission to have been involved in a 14 year price-fixing cartel across Europe.

Why It’s Significant

This is the first opt-in Collective Proceedings Order (CPO) made by the CAT and also the first CPO made in favour of a non-consumer class.

Therium’s Solution

Therium supported the case from the outset, including the bookbuild effort required to pursue the case on an opt-in basis. As part of the RHA’s application, Therium’s arrangements for funding and adverse costs cover were scrutinised in detail by the CAT.
