Every year, hundreds of class action lawsuits are filed against food and dietary supplement manufacturers, and both the defense and plaintiffs’ bar often accuse the other of disingenuous arguments and unfair tactics. In this webinar, leading litigators from both sides will share their perspectives on responsible–and irresponsible–advocacy and tactics in filing, litigating, and settling class action litigation. The discussion will also include guiding principles for counsel when interacting with each other and the court, and changes they would like to see in the future for more cordial and productive resolutions.
