The Implications of the Expanded Scope of the French Class Action System on Potential Liability and Insurance Coverage for Companies Domiciled and Doing Business in France

Peculiarly, French Class Action authorises only 486 associations to trigger the class action (in order to limitate pretentious lawsuits).

As a consequence, the Parisien Bar developed a platform where class actions can be proposed, are filtered by a board, get hyped in media, collect plaintiffs and are then triggered.

Seen as a monopoly, the network of authorised associations is being revised by the French government.
