BGP Litigation’s dispute resolution group announces the launch of its class action practice area.

We have well-calibrated strategies and unconventional approaches that help us develop customised solutions for each individual case with low costs for our clients. Given the growing popularity of class actions, we expect that this practice area will help us meet the market demand”, BGP Litigation partner Anna Ivanova remarked.
