Please join members of our Class Actions team for a discussion on emerging trends in product liability class actions.

  • Cross-country update on recent decisions and procedural developments in both individual and class actions involving product liability claims

  • Procedural strategies for addressing the plaintiffs’ delay

  • The emergence of novel plaintiffs’ theories of liability
