Nixon Peabody is pleased to be a sponsor of the 2015 DRI Class Actions Seminar

Class action litigation looms large as a potential threat to corporate defendants around the world and has captured the attention of the public, the court system and litigants alike. In this cutting-edge seminar, learn from experts about recent developments in the law, strategy and the best practices for successfully defending class cases. Esteemed Supreme Court advocates, experienced in-house counsel, members of the judiciary and master practitioners from across the globe will share their insight into every aspect of class action litigation—from removal to appeal, and everything in between. Management of the class case outside of the courtroom will also be explored, in sessions exploring financial incentives driving these cases, bellwether mediation and optimizing media relations.

This high-level seminar is hosted by an interdisciplinary collection of DRI committees and offers a stellar opportunity to sharpen your class action defense skills in the presence of the best in the business. Attendees will have the opportunity to build their book of contacts at a variety of networking events, where class action practitioners gather each summer in Washington, DC. If your practice includes the defense of class actions, this event is not to be missed.
