Our expertise

The Litigation team at BDB Pitmans specialise in group action litigation. Group action litigation occurs when multiple parties bring a collective claim against another party, or parties, who have caused each member of the group harm.

Our experience in this area extends to acting for a wide range of institutions and consumers and bringing claims against Solicitors, Financial Advisers and Banks.

We have particular expertise in Professional Negligence Group actions and claims arising from Unauthorised Collective Investment schemes.
