Mastercard and Visa to face another card exchange suit


Share post:

Mastercard and Visa are set to face yet another multi-billion-dollar lawsuit in the UK over Multilateral Interchange Fees (MIFs), according to Sky News.

Commercial litigation law firm Harcus Parker is set to file a claim at the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) on behalf of UK businesses in a case that could seek at least £7.5 billion in damages. The law firm will argue that interchange fees are set by Visa and Mastercard, not market forces.

Thomas Ross from Harcus Parker said: “These charges are illegal and should be scrapped.” Mastercard is also facing a USD 14 billion class action lawsuit over interchange fees brought on behalf of UK shoppers.
