Partner Jeff Jacobson
was interviewed for the Corporate Disputes
article “Defending Class Actions.” The article, a roundtable discussion featuring leading class action defense attorneys, takes a look at legal activity over the past 12 months, challenges faced by defendants, defensive strategies, discovery obligations, media attention and key considerations for companies faced with potentially costly class actions.
