Hausfeld, in conjunction with Transport en Logistiek Nederland (TLN), the leading truck trade association in the Netherlands, approached TVM to fund a mass claim by truck owners against manufacturers after the announcement of European Commission cartel fines for price-fixing. Genevieve was part of the team working on this case.
