Trends In Consumer Class Actions: How To Avoid Becoming A Target
For the last several years, state and federal courts across the country as well as arbitration tribunals have been fertile ground for class action and aggregate litigation, and consumer class actions in particular. Developments in this area have driven several trends, including state consumer fraud claims, and the increasing coordination and even cooperation between the plaintiffs' class action bar and federal and state regulators. Neal Marder and Hyongsoon Kim will provide an update on the substance of the new case law and legislative developments and how to navigate them. They also will discuss other recent activity, including guidance on steps companies can take to minimize potential class action liability. This seminar will focus on: False Advertising Class Actions, Recent Trends in Class Actions, and Current Issues in Class Action Trials and the Landscape of Litigation Post-Concepcion. This program is an excellent resource for in-house counsel, litigation attorneys, and entrepreneurs.
