Hereford funds claim against Google

Hereford has agreed to fund a new multibillion-pound lawsuit by UK consumers against Google accusing the company of contributing to cost-of-living price rises.

The lawsuit filed with the Competition Appeal Tribunal claims that Google has broken competition law and raised the cost of living for every UK consumer by stifling competition in the search engine market. Estimated compensation of £7.3bn has been requested for about 65 million UK users over the age of 16, meaning at least £100 per person on average.

Legal counsel for the claim is Hausfeld.
