Why Fox Williams?
We are aware other English law firms are also investigating the basis of a claim against Mercedes in the UK for diesel emissions deception but cannot speak for their plans. What we can say is that we will be collaborating with Hagens Berman, the firm that led the charge for dieselgate claims against both Volkswagen and Mercedes in the US and successfully secured compensation in that respect for US based Mercedes owners, as announced on 13 August 2020. We believe access to Hagen Berman’s in-depth scientific evidence and US legal experience will be highly relevant to any English law claim and will help us to establish liability under English law. We are also seeking to bring our business focus and commercial litigation experience to bear on this case, which includes substantial experience in civil fraud cases, and in acting for groups of claimants in funded claims against major corporations.
As such we hope to represent a sizeable group and play a lead role in the claims and arguments to be heard against Mercedes here.
Hagens Berman will be collaborating with Fox Williams and supporting Fox Williams to bring this claim on your behalf; Fox Williams will be the solicitor on record. Given Hagens Berman’s proven success against Mercedes in the US, Fox Williams will be drawing on Hagen Berman’s in-depth scientific evidence and experience to help us to establish liability under English law.
