Volkswagen (VW) Emissions

Your Lawyers Limited (t/a the Car Emissions Lawyers) is a specialist consumer action law firm that pioneered the first High Court action against Volkswagen in England and Wales after news broke about the "Dieselgate" emissions scandal. We have also been appointed to the Steering Committee leading the fight for justice. Being appointed to the Steering Committee means we are at the forefront of the High Court litigation and co-manage the course of the action.

VW fitted millions of vehicles worldwide with defeat devices, resulting in increased amounts of dangerous NOx being polluted. NOx is lethal and damages our environment. Consumers have been misled, and VW must be held to account for their wrongdoing.

Your Lawyers were one of the first law firms in England to represent Claimants against Volkswagen on a No Win, No Fee basis in October 2015, and the first law firm to launch cases against Volkswagen in the High Court of Justice in January 2016.

From the very beginning when the news broke about Volkswagen's deception, we emphasised the importance of working with other lawyers in the U.K. and across the world in a unified approach. VW is one of the biggest corporations in the world and it takes the combined expertise of law firms to fight them through the courts.

We established ourselves, as the first law firm in England to launch High Court proceedings, in a strong position. We have been appointed to the Steering Committee by the High Court of Justice, and secured funding and top-rated insurance to protect our Claimant Group.

We have been working with lawyers and partners in America and across Europe, and our team has been fighting for justice since news of the breaking of the VW Emissions Scandal.

The court action is underway where a Group Litigation Order (GLO) has been established. A GLO is an order of the court which permits a number of claims with common or related issues (of fact or law) to be managed collectively.
