Google to face £14bn class action over ‘vice-like grip’ on UK advertising


Marketing Beat, 5/6/24

These proceedings constitute an exceedingly important part of the economy, where Google has a vice-like grip on the market,” said Robert O’Donoghue KC, of Brick Court Chambers, representing the collective.

“This case involves hundreds of billions of ad-spend on a global level.”

O’Donoghue also said Ad Tech was “frankly flabbergasted” that Google had claimed its impact on the industry was “hugely pro-competitive”.

“Every regulator and court profoundly disagrees, and no regulator has blessed its practices or even deemed them innocuous.”
