Litigation Finance Agreement for new representative claim against Google and DeepMind Technologies

Litigation Capital Management Limited (AIM:LIT), an alternative asset manager specializing in dispute financing solutions internationally, announces that it has entered into a litigation finance agreement for a new representative claim.

The finance agreement is to fund a new representative action in the High Court of Justice of England & Wales brought on behalf of up to 1.6 million individuals against Google and DeepMind Technologies for the unlawful use of patients’ confidential medical records.

The claim is for the misuse of private information and arises out of an arrangement formed in 2015 between Google and DeepMind and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. The tech companies obtained and used a substantial number of confidential and private medical records without patients’ knowledge or consent.

This representative claim being brought by Mishcon de Reya, provides access to justice and a means of compensation which would not have been viable on an individual basis due to the cost of the litigation process. Not only does it provide a means of redress to those affected by the misuse of their private and confidential medical records but this is also a significant claim for LCM to support and fund.

Patrick Moloney, CEO of LCM, commented: “LCM has a long and deep experience in funding large scale actions, many of which would not be possible without litigation funding. As pioneers of the industry, we are well-placed to support the claim in this action.”
