Philadelphia partner Michael P. Daly discussed “Class Action Settlements: Hot Topics in 2016 and Beyond” in a live webcast on Thursday, October 27, 2016.
Class action settlements can be an effective way to manage the uncertainties and inconveniences of aggregate litigation by giving both sides the peace and predictability they desire. But settling class actions requires careful observance of certain procedures and best practices in order to obtain a settlement that will withstand scrutiny from judges and attorneys general and survive challenges from objectors.
Mike joined other thought leaders to explain the fundamental aspects of class action settlements. Panelists provided an in-depth discussion of the hot issues in this area and also offered best practices in effectively and successfully settling class actions.
