Following a monumental four-year legal battle, the UK Supreme Court has ruled in favour of Your Lawyers after a lengthy appeal case against Harcus Sinclair was concluded. The case initially arose from an agreement signed by the two firms in relation to the Volkswagen emissions litigation.
Unfortunately, Harcus Sinclair subsequently failed to honour the agreement made with Your Lawyers. Your Lawyers has been trading as The Car Emissions Lawyers since 2015 when news of the first “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines, representing thousands of owners claiming against a range of carmakers in England and Wales.
Aman Johal, lawyer and director of Your Lawyers (The Car Emissions Lawyers), expressed his relief at the ruling: “This is such an important victory for Your Lawyers but also for the dignity and sanctity of the legal profession. We have lived and breathed this case for four long years and were forced to take the matter all the way to the UK Supreme Court simply to oblige a law firm to honour an agreement that they freely entered into.”
Having been subjected to investigations several years ago, it has now been confirmed that French carmaker Renault has been charged by a court. Launched in 2017, the Renault diesel emissions investigations are among many probes into alleged emissions fraud that have been aimed at a number of accused carmakers.
Since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal that broke in the media in 2015, in which the company was accused of fitting illegal defeat devices to its diesel vehicles, a number of the world’s most well-known car brands have also been met with accusations that they manipulated emissions control software in their diesel cars. Volkswagen has already been levelled with billions of pounds in fines, and the latest decision in the Renault case indicates that it may be heading towards higher financial penalties also.
As the first firm to initiate High Court proceedings in England and Wales against Volkswagen soon after the scandal broke, we have been representing claimants affected by alleged emissions cheating for over 5 years. We are determined to see that all suspected carmakers are held to account where allegations are proven. We can take on claims for any car owners who are found to have been affected by Renault’s alleged emissions cheating.
As specialists in group actions, we often represent tens, hundreds, or thousands of claimants in the same lawsuit. We can bring group actions when multiple claimants are affected by the same breach of their rights, such as when they owned a car affected by emissions irregularities. When we believe that a group action is large and strong enough to be better managed and formally recognised with the court, we can apply for a GLO, as was done in the case of our Volkswagen emissions group action.
But what is a GLO? In short, GLO stands for Group Litigation Order, and is the term often used for formally recognised group actions here in England and Wales. As a claimant, you don’t need to know all the ins and outs of the legal terminology, but it is important to know how you can register for a GLO and what this means for your claim.
We make it as easy as possible for our clients to register their claims – you can use our online form today to check your eligibility for a car emissions claim quickly now.
Ever since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal broke in 2015, The Car Emissions Lawyers have been instrumental in the fight to hold car manufacturers to account for any unethical practices of installing ‘defeat devices’ in cars in order to cheat emissions tests. One of our most recent lawsuits is the Nissan and Renault emissions action, launched over similar allegations that the manufacturer’s vehicles may have been producing excessive emissions for sinister reasons.
The carmaker strongly denies that they have done anything wrong, and we are in the process of investigating the allegations accordingly.
If you owned or leased a potentially affected vehicle, you may be eligible to claim in our group action. Excessive vehicle pollution has been proven to contribute toward environmental damage and harm respiratory health, so it is unacceptable if car manufacturers have been engaging in fraudulent practices behind closed doors just so they don’t have to compromise on things like engine performance.
If you have been affected by any of the recent car emissions scandals, it is important you do not miss the deadline to claim.
Car emissions scandals can be extremely damaging to the general population and the environment, particularly in built-up areas such as cities. Holding car manufacturers accountable for any unlawful level of toxic emissions is vital, and exactly what we are here for.
Whilst carmakers continue to deny liability for the emissions claims, we continue to push hard to hold them to account where we believe that there has been a breach of the law.

If you have been involved in any of the recent alleged emissions scandals involving car manufacturers such as, Mercedes, Nissan & Renault, Porsche, or Fiat, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim with us today.
Your Lawyers (T/a The Car Emissions Lawyers) are pioneers in vehicle emissions action. We were one of the first to take action for the Volkswagen ‘Dieselgate’ emissions scandal and have been taking action ever since. Read on to find out more about the Car Emissions Lawyers below.
We are an experienced law firm that is passionate about the impact of emissions scandals on our health and the environment, and we make it our mission to champion consumer rights. With the emissions scandals, it is down to allegations that some manufacturers could be using a form of ‘defeat device’ software to cheat emissions tests and pass EU emissions restrictions. By cheating the tests, cars could then produce illegal amounts of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) during normal use which can be extremely harmful to both the human population and to the environment.
If your vehicle has been subject to a software update in relation to engine management, systems, or emissions, you could be eligible to make an emissions claim with us now.
If you have yet to do so, we always advise that starting an emissions claim as soon as possible is the best way to go, and we are here to help you now.
It is important to understand that every single case will be subject to legal time limits to claim. There are time limits as set out in the Limitations Act, and there are also court deadlines to make sure you do not miss in most cases like this as well.
Once these time limits have expired, it may be the case that you can no longer go ahead with the case without special permission from the court. This is not something that is commonly granted, so you must make sure that you do not miss out on the chance to claim.
Your Lawyers – The Car Emission Lawyers – are representing UK clients who have been affected emissions scandals, and you can sign-up for a Nissan and Renault emissions claim here now.
Many carmakers around the world are facing legal actions and penalty fines, with some already settled and issued, over emissions problems and irregularities. Two of the latest to be investigated here in the UK are Renault and Nissan, part of the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance. The South Korean government banned the sale of some models from several carmakers that included vehicles manufactured by the Alliance, and recalls have previously been initiated.
In the UK, we are potentially at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to these particular manufacturers. Owners can now sign-up for a Nissan and Renault emissions claims here.
The European Commission currently has tight emissions tests and regulations in place for light–duty (cars, vans) and heavy-duty vehicles (lorries, buses), and for non-road mobile machinery.
Over the last few years, with the introduction of higher standards, the legal limit of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) has reportedly decreased by almost 70% for diesel cars.
Unfortunately, to meet these tighter restrictions, some car manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’. This can be a type of software that can allow vehicles to restrict performance and pass their emissions tests, but allow for far greater emissions levels when being used on the road. The scandals stemmed from the original VW “dieselgate” issues that came to light in 2015 that has resulted in the High Court making a finding that the technology they used is a defeat device.
Nissan and Renault vehicles are being pursued over a potential emissions scandal, and it is thought that over 1.4 million vehicles could be affected in the UK alone.
Emissions matters are very serious. If a carmaker has been found to be cheating the law, this can mean that manufacturers are allowing the release of unlawful amounts of NOx emissions into the environment. The European emissions regulations impose strict restrictions on car models as to how much pollution can be emitted in order to prevent extreme amounts of toxic gases being released into our atmosphere.
Studies show that the production of NOx can be harmful to both the environment and to the general public, and it can be responsible for tens of thousands of premature deaths each year. This is why emissions regulations are vital, especially in highly populated areas. Nissan and Renault deny that they have done anything wrong but, if they are found to have been cheating emissions testing, we will hold them to account.
Your Lawyers has been pivotal in the emissions compensation claims that have been pursued in the UK against VW, Mercedes and others since 2015.
Following our recent media coverage, we have seen a surge in sign-ups for Mercedes emissions compensation cases as well as a number of people asking for our help over the recent revelations about Nissan and Renault as well.
In 2015, we were one of the first – if not, the first – firms in England and Wales to take real action over emissions injustices. We were also the first to issue High Court proceedings in England and Wales in 2016, and we were appointed with a seat on the Steering Committee for the VW action in 2018.
We continue to fight for the rights of people who have been wronged by the use of (allegedly or otherwise) defeat device technology. If you need our help, you can sign up for a legal case today on a No Win, No Fee basis.
