Chambers Practice Guide on Collective Redress and Class Actions

Bettina Knoetzl and Kirstin McGoldrick explore the recent developments in Austria on collective redress and class action in the latest Chambers and Partners Practice Guide on Collective Redress and Class Action.  They provide a detailed review of the current legal framework and mechanisms available, as well as the legislative reform in view of Austria’s implementation of the EU Directive 2020/1828 on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers. Its implementation will most likely provide a significantly changed landscape in Austrian civil procedural law, as well as substantive tort law provisions, most notably, a revised interruption of the statute of limitations.

Our lawyers are recognized as leading dispute resolution experts who continue to score notable successes in our Austrian and international clients’ most complex and important matters.
