STAGE Network Webinar: Multistate AG Litigation: How to Respond

Since the landmark tobacco litigation of the 1990s, state Attorneys General have brought an increasing number of coordinated actions against companies and industries. From product liability, to antitrust, to financial fraud, these multistate cases have covered a variety of legal issues impacting millions of consumers. The incentives for this trend to continue are strong, including the budget savings from sharing the workload and blockbuster settlements. Because the size and complexity of these cases are daunting, and the risks to companies caught in the crosshairs so high, STAGE Network is presenting a webinar panel discussion with attorneys who have been on the front lines of such recent litigation. These experienced attorneys will share insights and practical tips on how companies and their counsel can more effectively manage, litigate, and resolve these cases. Topics will include:

  • Coordinating and managing a global strategy
  • Deciding whether and how to consolidate cases
  • Dealing with conflicting document requests and discovery schedules
  • Engaging in multiparty negotiations to reach a favorable resolution

Moderator & Panelists:

  • Bradley J. Bondi, Partner, Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP (Moderator)
  • Douglas F. Gansler, Partner, Buckley Sandler LLP; former Maryland Attorney General and President of the National Association of Attorneys General
  • S. Penny Windle, Partner, Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP
  • Jason M. Hall, Partner, Cahill Gordon & Reindell LLP

When: Tuesday, September 22, 2015 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (ET)


Registration is complimentary. Media representatives are welcome to register.

About STAGE Network

STAGE Network is a response to two of the most significant regulatory changes to emerge from the financial crisis: (1) the vastly increased enforcement role assumed by state attorneys general with respect to financial services providers; and (2) the creation of the CFPB, charged among other things with working closely with state attorneys general to protect consumers. STAGE Network is committed to:

  • Raising awareness of the rapidly expanding role that state attorneys general and state regulators are playing in enforcement of laws impacting financial services companies;
  • establishing a forum for discussion of important policy issues with state attorneys general and state regulators; and
  • facilitating compliance with existing and anticipated state laws and regulations through education and outreach efforts.
