Robert Palmer KC, Julian Gregory and Will Perry are working to prepare opt-out collective proceedings against Valve Corporation. Valve operates Steam, one of the world’s largest digital video game distribution platforms. The claim, which will be issued in the Competition Appeal Tribunal in the coming weeks, will allege that Valve used its market power in a way which has led to consumers being overcharged for games and in-game content distributed via Steam.
Robert, Julian and Will are acting for Proposed Class Representative, Vicki Shotbolt, a prominent campaigner for children’s digital rights. They are instructed by Milberg London LLP (see their press release here) and are working with funders Bench Walk Advisors, and economists from the Berkeley Research Group.
