Join Baker McKenzie for a webinar on “Looking Ahead: Class Actions and Consumer Claims in 2021” to be held on Thursday, 14 January 2021 at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET.

The rapid expansion of class actions outside of the US has brought new risks for global multinationals and a renewed need to consider strategies when defending against claims across jurisdictions.

A panel of international specialists from Baker McKenzie, along with our guest speaker, Andrew Hildreth, Senior Managing Director of Ankura, will discuss how the expansion of class actions outside the US will affect consumer claims, data privacy and tech claims and competition law in particular, as well as global strategy when coordinating class claims across jurisdictions. 

The webinar will begin at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET and is scheduled to run for up to 60 minutes. If you reside in a different time zone and wish to verify your time – please see for the time in your location.
