Andrew Dinsmore instructed on British Airways data breach case

Andrew Dinsmore has been instructed on behalf of several thousand claimants to bring an action against British Airways following a high-profile data breach. Instructed by SPG Law, he will act in a group litigation against British Airways following the hacking of the British Airways website, in the summer of this year, which led to approximately 380,000 people’s personal and financial details being stolen. This will be one of the first large-scale pieces of group litigation in England against a major corporation under the GDPR, which came into effect in May 2018, following a breach of cybersecurity.

Andrew practices in high-value, complex commercial litigation and has developed a specialism in cybersecurity issues. He regularly publishes for the Journal of International Banking and Financial Law on this topic and has recently acted in several cases to obtain freezing injunctions following cybersecurity breaches. Andrew also has strong knowledge of cybersecurity regulation and statutes globally.

Several members of 20 Essex Street are active in this area. In July, the Commercial Court granted final proprietary relief and damages at trial in a ground breaking cyber-fraud litigation that saw the first known Worldwide Freezing and Proprietary Injunctions against Persons Unknown. Paul Lowenstein QC and Matthew McGhee, instructed by CYK LLP, acted for CMOC.
