12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. EST

Please join the lawyers of Jones Day for an informative discussion on recent trends in consumer class actions, with a focus on settlements and arbitration issues.

On settlements, the speakers will discuss current court and regulatory scrutiny of class settlements and challenges to approvals, as well as the methods and limits of protection through settlements with individual named plaintiffs.

On arbitration, the speakers will discuss a growing trend of mass filings of individual arbitrations by plaintiffs' counsel, public injunctive relief as a method of avoiding arbitration, and best practices in drafting arbitration provisions with class action waivers.
