Environmental Automotive Class Action Collective Redress Emissions Group Litigation


The Case

Therium funded the UK “dieselgate” group action against Volkswagen relating to the sale and leasing of vehicles containing defeat device software in breach of emissions legislation designed to protect the environment.

Why It’s Significant

The case was the largest Group Litigation Order (GLO) in British legal history with over 70,000 claimants initially, rising to more than 90,000 across the three lead claimant law firms. Therium funded a significant majority of the group.

Therium’s Solution

According to Volkswagen’s public statement, the claimants reached an out of court settlement in May 2022 with £193 million being paid to the claimants, in addition to a separate contribution towards Claimants’ legal costs and other fees.
