Overview

A lawsuit is being filed in Copenhagen by some of the world’s leading international and Danish law firms, on behalf of investors who suffered investment losses in Danske Bank’s share price after various disclosures related to an estimated EUR €200 billion money transfer scheme involving non-resident Eastern European and Russian customers in the Bank’s Estonian Branch. Information about critical lapses in Danske Bank’s ‘know your customer’ and anti-money laundering internal enforcement policies, and its failure to act upon both internal and external warnings of non-compliance, caused a more than a 40% decline in Danske’s stock price resulting in losses for investors of more than USD $15 billion.

Collective actions known as “Group” actions in Denmark require investors to “Opt In”, in order to participate in any investor recovery payouts from a settlement or judgment.The most viable group litigation option for Battea’s clients will be to register with the International Securities Associations and Foundations Management Company (ISAF) Coalition, with Danish law firm, Németh Sigetty Advokatpartnerselskab managing the litigation on the ground and supported by the leading collective action law firms in Europe, TILP Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH and Lemstra Van der Korst NV, and American class action litigation firms, Pomerantz LLP and Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP.
