Quartet advise as Volkswagen Group agrees £193 Dieselgate UK Settlement

A £193M settlement has been reached between Volkswagen and around 91,000 claimants in a U.K. group action over the carmaker’s emissions scandal. The claim, which should now result in each car owner receiving around £2,100, was backed by litigation funders Therium and North Wall Capital. Therium, the largest backers, funded claimants represented by Slater & Gordon, whilst North Wall financed PGMBM claimants. Leigh Day did not have any litigation funding, instead working on a conditional fee agreement. More from Law.com.

Bargain Shares: Exploiting information voids

The share price of litigation claims processor Anexo may not reflect its full value, as investors appear not to have fully factored in Volkswagen’s £193mn out-of-court settlement for the Therium class action brought against the German carmaker by 91,000 emission scandal claimants. Indeed, an out-of-court settlement looks a racing certainty for Anexo’s own action against VW (on behalf of 13,000 claimants) well before January’s court date.
