As a result of recent significant Supreme Court rulings focusing on class actions, new strategies have emerged for defending against and resolving class actions.  This webinar will take an in-depth look at best practices and strategies to dispose of class actions at the early stages of litigation and at class certification, and to achieve court approval for class settlements.

This webinar will examine:

  • How faithfully are courts following the Supreme Court’s Concepcion decision in enforcing arbitration clauses?  Beyond moving to compel arbitration, what are other strategies for defeating a class action in the preliminary stages of litigation?
  • How can you make the most effective use of the Supreme Court’s decisions in Wal-Mart and Comcast to defeat class actions at the class certification stage?
  • In an era of heightened court scrutiny of class settlements, what steps can you take to increase the likelihood of obtaining court approval for your settlement?
