Smart Defense of Class Actions

New York CLE Seminar Series

March 12, 2009 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm (EDT)

In this economy, when a company is hit with any lawsuit, the time, money and effort spent in defense can be enormous, regardless of the outcome. Certification of a class can undermine the bottom line. And during these turbulent times, the reverberations of mass layoffs, disenfranchised investors, unhappy consumers, and a hungry plaintiffs’ bar have broad implications for class action litigation.

Join Kelley Drye litigators as they discuss the details of smart and creative defensive techniques for class action litigation. Learn innovative ways to short-cut the litigation, and minimize the expense and public-relations implications posed by these actions. They will provide a lively discussion of CAFA, jurisdictional questions and removal, class certification and settlement issues, and insurance coverage available for defense and indemnity of these actions.

In accordance with the requirements of the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board, this non-transitional continuing legal education program is not approved for the newly admitted attorney within the first two years of admission to the Bar.
