Class action litigation continues to pose significant risks and challenges for American and international businesses. Class actions have been a significant focus for the United States Supreme Court in recent years and this term has been no exception. Meanwhile, prior rulings are being interpreted and further developed by the lower courts against a backdrop of significant changes: the new Trump administration and forthcoming changes to federal Rule 23.
The DRI Class Actions Seminar gives attendees a unique opportunity to hear prominent SCOTUS advocates discuss the Court’s recent class action decisions and a Canadian Supreme Court Justice offer insights about class action appeals in that country. Renowned class action practitioners and experienced in-house counsel will also discuss emerging class action trends and effective strategies for defending a class action from inception, through opposition to class certification, to successful resolution through settlement or trial.
