5 questions to ask when choosing an EasyJet data breach lawyer

At Hayes Connor Solicitors, we have launched a no-win, no-fee group litigation action against the airline. Group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim. But we understand that choosing a solicitor can be daunting. How do you know if they are the right firm for you, and, can you be sure that you won’t have to pay any unforeseen costs? To make the process a little bit easier, here are just some of the questions you should ask when choosing an EasyJet data breach lawyer.

Is you firm a data breach expert?

The best way to make EasyJet pay for its failure to look after your data is to use a specialist data breach lawyer.

A dedicated data breach law firm will employ specialists in data breach law. So they will understand what it takes to make a successful data breach claim. Some firms are keen to take on data breach cases, but they are not experts in this field. Even “litigation specialists” may not have significant data breach experience.

But, if you use a firm that only deals with data breach law, all its resources will go towards enhancing this area of expertise. And, every single person who works there – from the individual who first picks up your call to the managing director – will have data breach experience.  This can be invaluable in getting you the compensation you deserve.

Hayes Connor is the leading data breach law firm in the UK.

How much will it cost to make a claim with your EasyJet data breach lawyers?

Many firms will offer their services on a no-win, no-fee basis. In such cases, if you don’t win, you don’t have to pay a penny.

But it’s also worth looking at what you will be charged if you win. Because if your claim is successful, you will have to contribute towards your EasyJet data breach lawyer’s costs. This ‘success fee’ is taken from the compensation awarded to you, and in some cases, it can be much higher than you expected. We’ve seen some solicitors charge 30% or more.

At Hayes Connor, we believe that our success fee is one of the most competitive around, and with us, you never have to pay more than 25% of your compensation.

There are no other hidden fees or admin charges.

Have you any experience managing data breach group actions?

We believe that a group action is the best way to claim EasyJet compensation. This is because a group action allows people to bring their claims together to strengthen their overall position and increase their chances of success.

There are a number of UK firms that have knowledge of multi-party litigation, but it’s worth checking to see if they have managed multiple data breach group actions. Because, when it comes to winning cases, understanding the law is only half the battle. You also need experience.

At Hayes Connor, we are currently managing a number of large data breach group actions. You can find out more about these here.  Currently, we are taking on big players such as Ticketmaster, Dixons, BA and Equifax (among others!).  In fact, in 2019 we were the only UK legal firm to launch a multi-party action against Ticketmaster and we issued a landmark £100 million data breach claim against Equifax.

And, in addition to our own legal expertise, we also work with expert barristers to help us win our group action cases. So, we are confident that our team will get the results you deserve.

How long have you been doing this for?

Data breach and cybercrime breaches are a relatively new and evolving area of law, so it can be difficult to find specialist EasyJet data breach lawyers.

But, over the past few years, our firm has established itself as the only niche provider of legal services in this area. And, because we have been doing this for longer than most, we lead our field when it comes to understanding the complexities involved.

Before that, we worked on different types of compensation claims. And, with over 50 years’ experience helping our clients secure the justice they deserve, our solicitors work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Because of the level of our legal expertise, we provide an authoritative voice on data protection and cybercrime hot topics. Check out our latest media coverage here.

What is your success rate like?

When appointing EasyJet lawyers, you should ensure that they have a record of success when it comes to winning data breach cases. Last year at Hayes Connor:

  • 75% of our claims were concluded in under 9 months
  • We secured the largest amount of compensation for an individual claimant. In this case the client was awarded £100,000
  • We saw the average amount recovered for clients increase by over 25%. We are anticipating further growth in 2020.
