Buckley Sandler Webcast: Latest Trends and Tips on Class Action Settlements
First webcast in a quarterly series focused on litigation issues and trends
If your company needs or desires to settle a putative class action, beware. Professional objectors and activist judges may be waiting in the wings to attack the proposed settlement, creating public relations risks, substantially increased fees and outlays, and the risk of trial. This makes it all the more critical for in-house counsel to have a solid understanding of the latest rulings, trends, and other insights into settlement.
In our first webcast of a quarterly series dedicated to addressing issues of concern to litigation, Buckley Sandler attorneys Katherine Halliday and Ali Abugheida will address how to avoid common and not-so-common pitfalls in class action settlement negotiations by learning from others’ successes and mistakes. Using examples from recent, significant decisions on federal class action settlements, we will offer our top 10 tips for a successful settlement.
Who Should Attend: This webcast will be of particular interest to in-house legal and risk professionals who are or may be involved in the defense and resolution of class actions, or the structuring and implementation of settlements arising out of such class actions.
When: Tuesday, March 1, 2016 from 2:30 to 3:30 pm ET.
