As a result of the Ticketmaster data breach, many people suffered actual and potential financial harm and emotional distress. According to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), 60,000 payment cards belonging to Barclays Bank customers were subjected to known fraud, and Monzo Bank replaced another 6,000 cards on suspicion of fraudulent use. This highlights the impact a data breach can have. Indeed, following the hack, Ticketmaster received 997 complaints relating to financial loss and/or emotional distress.
In November 2020, Ticketmaster was fined £1.25 million by the ICO for failing to protect its customers’ payment details. However, none of this money will go to victims of the data breach.
At Keller Lenkner UK, we believe that Ticketmaster should compensate the people whose data it failed to protect. And that the best way to ensure this happens is by appointing a specialist lawyer. Here is why we believe you should use our data protection specialists to claim Ticketmaster data breach compensation…
We are data breach experts
At Keller Lenkner UK, our data breach and cybercrime specialists are some of the best in the business. We lead our field when it comes to understanding the complexities involved and our team of data protection experts is led by Kingsley Hayes – one of the UK’s foremost data breach solicitors.
When it comes to making a compensation claim, a lack of care and understanding about data breach law can leave victims open to advice and representation below the standard expected. And this could see you lose out financially as a result.
We have the experience to hold Ticketmaster to account
We have the legal expertise needed to take on big players such as Ticketmaster. In fact, we are currently at an advanced stage of an existing High Court action against Ticketmaster on behalf of thousands of affected customers. What is more, Keller Lenkner UK is the only law firm actively litigating this case in the UK at this time.
We offer strength in numbers
Lots of people were affected by the Ticketmaster data hack, so it is worth joining a group action. A group action claim is where a group of people – sometimes even thousands of people – have been affected by the same issue. Group action cases are also known as class actions or multi-claimant actions.
A group action strengthens the overall position of the claimants and makes big organisations take the matter seriously. As a result, group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim.
Our first multi-claimant action is being heard in the High Court. But, because of the number of people affected by the Ticketmaster data breach, we are now registering people who are interested in the outcome of our initial action, and who might want to progress a further claim against Ticketmaster.

We provide a free consultation
At Keller Lenkner UK, we provide a free consultation to make sure we can help you. If you want to make a Ticketmaster data breach compensation claim with us, we can advise you on whether you have a valid claim, answer any questions you might have and go through your options with you. We will do all this without charging you a penny.
We provide no-win-no-fee agreements
We are providing no-win, no-fee funding arrangements for anyone that wants to join our Ticketmaster group action. And there are no hidden costs or admin expenses. We have also secured insurance for our Ticketmaster data breach action. This is important as it helps to protect you against all costs.
If you win, our fees are transparent
If your claim is successful, you usually have to contribute towards your solicitor’s costs. This ‘success fee’ is taken from the compensation awarded to you, and in some cases, it can be much higher than you expected.
The amount of the success fee depends on when your case is settled, but with Keller Lenkner UK, you will not pay more than 25% of your compensation. We have to charge this to cover our costs. There are no hidden charges or other administration fees.
We always make sure you are fully informed about any potential costs before we proceed.
We look at the bigger picture
All too often, claims management companies are more concerned about making fast cash than helping victims. So, while they might help you get some money back for a data breach, they are less concerned about ensuring you are fully compensated for the long-term and often psychological effects of a breach. When you appoint us, we make sure you get the maximum compensation from Ticketmaster possible.
Because we understand that the full impact of a data breach is often not felt until months after the initial violation, we also take a long-term view when it comes to claiming compensation on your behalf.
