This is all about the battle by Claimants' lawyers, Leigh Day to obtain
compensation for the people of the Ivory Coast arising out of the alleged
dumping of toxic waste by Trafigura.
I was particularly shocked by this:
"if every claimant had been paid in full, that would amount to about £3 in costs for every £1 recovered."
In other words Leigh Day have spent/earned £3 to win £1.
