Welcome to our newest blog, Class Action Settlements and Mediation! The purpose of this blog is to provide information about developments in the law of class action settlements, as well as practical tips for lawyers and parties mediating class actions and negotiating class action settlements. As many lawyers know, settling a class action is far more complex than settling a single-plaintiff lawsuit, and I hope that this site will become a useful resource for both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ attorneys undertaking that monumental task.
To kick it off, I have decided to link to a few posts from our website and our First Class Defense blog that offer guidance and legal updates relevant to class action settlements. If you find these links useful, you may also want to read my white paper on class action mediation, which you can find in the right-hand panel of this blog’s home page. Soon, I will be posting original material on the topics of class action settlements and mediation.
