Seven Industry claims on collective redress and why they are false or misleading

The US Chamber Institute for Law Reform, a think-tank subsidiary of the US Chamber of Commerce, has launched a website claiming to represent “A Fair Deal for EU Consumers”.

In this document, we reply to each of the 7 industry claims and explain why they are false or misleading.
