Our participation in the GJN conference of Prague
On 25th, 26th and 27th of May the GJN (Global Justice Network) spring conference took place in Prague. As a founding member of the GJN our firm has participated at this legal decisive event.
Established in 2007 the GJN gathers law firms from more than 40 different countries all over the world so as to coordinate and promote justice on every continent.
Since its foundation by Lieff Cabraser Heimann and Bernstein, LLP/LCHB (a repeatedly ranked No 1 litigation Law firm in the U.S), the GJN has always succeed to develop and deepen its activities. It provides now the possibility to pursue collective legal actions in order to achieve a more efficient defense of our clients.
The Prague conference provided an opportunity to discuss key issues or current challenges in the field of human rights, medical issues, financial litigation and more particularly at the collective claim against Volkswagen in Europe.
Regarding the Volkswagen case, some of GJN law firms have established a foundation under the name CLEAN (''Consumers Lead Emissions Accountability Network'') to enable European claimants to obtain damages, like Americans owners, through a class action.
Lastly, as a pioneering international organization, the GJN appears to be a necessity in that time of globalization. The trans-border cooperation is a new work method which has great advantages. In particular, it permits our firm to benefit from a large network of partners and associates and to maintain a prestigious presence in many different places. This is a truly innovative scheme by any standards: it enables a combination of in depth knowledge of local legal systems with the strength and quality level of international standards.
