Bristows given a second chance against Olswang in the Supreme Court

Bristows given a second chance against Olswang in the Supreme Court

Technology giant Google has been successful in obtaining permission to appeal a recent Court of Appeal decision. Google, who are represented by Bristows had attempted to block British users of their internet services from bringing a claim in a London court, seeing as the company is based in California. However, the CoA upheld the High Court judgment and the claimants represented by Olswang were found to have been victim of a duty of confidence owed by Google. The decision opened the floodgates to a wave of litigation claims by Britons who used Apple products between the summer of 2011 and spring 2012. The decision has now been suspended, pending the outcome of the Supreme Court hearing.
Bristows will now be contending with Olswang once again in the Supreme Court. Google will be represented by Matrix Chambers’ Antony White QC and One Brick Court’s Catrin Evans, instructed by Bristows’ partners Mark Watts and Myles Jelf.
While the claimants will be represented by Hugh Tomlinson and Ben Silverstone of Matrix Chambers, instructed by Olswang partner Dan Tench.
