  • Bates & Ors v Post Office Ltd

    One of The Lawyer’s Top 20 Cases of 2018

    More than 500 current and former postmasters are taking on the Post Office over alleged failures in the electronic point of sales (EPS) and accounting system. The claimants say that this caused false figures to appear in monthly accounts and trigger false losses, which came directly out of employees’ pockets.

    The sub-postmasters allege that the failures are so great that they have caused a number of employees to lose their jobs and face prosecution for theft and false accounting.

    The group is pursuing the Post Office for around £120m over claims including breach of contract, deceit, negligent mis-statement, economic duress, harassment and malicious prosecution. The claims have already been subject to parliamentary scrutiny.

  • Google Data Breach Class Action

    Google Data Breach Class Action

    A representative action on behalf of approximately 5.4 million iPhone users issued against Google November 2017.
