GRIP is open to any organisation, business or individual that may have been harmed by Google's anticompetitive practices.

After careful consideration and initial filtering by Avisa, your case may be referred for further legal assessment. Avisa is a consultancy focused on European Union policy development and regulatory enforcement. Based in Brussels, Avisa has been registered since July 2009 on the Joint European Transparency Register of the European Commission and the European Parliament. Avisa has followed the EC investigation since 2009 and is assisting 1plusV, a French Internet search firm, one of the companies whose original complaint prompted the EC’s investigation into Google’s search criteria.

Hausfeld, a specialist competition law firm, will lead the legal assessment. In Europe, Hausfeld is pursuing some of the largest and most complex litigation before the courts. Its experience and reputation in the market has meant that Hausfeld has often been able to resolve these claims through negotiations thereby avoiding the need for time‐consuming and costly litigation. Hausfeld’s extensive experience with funders and insurers could provide a range of options to pursue prospective litigation in a flexible manner and lower potential cost risk.

After the merits and legal prospects of your case are evaluated, together with Hausfeld you will consider options for going forward.

GRIP will remain independent and transparent about its actions and its members.
