Class Action & Mass Tort
ATLANTA – June 13, 2018 — Epiq, a global leader in the legal services industry, today announced that nationally recognized notice expert Cameron Azari, and Lauren McGeever, an expert in class actions, will present a session entitled “Recent Developments in Class Action Notice and Claims Administration,” at the Practising Law Institute Class Action Litigation Conference. The session will be held at the Practising Law Institute in New York, on Thursday, June 21 at 11 a.m. EDT.
“Changes to Rule 23 are set to go into effect later this year and it’s important for counsel on both sides to be prepared for how those changes may affect settlements and how they are administered,” said Azari. “Once a settlement is reached, all parties must be on the same page in terms of getting that agreement through final approval.”
In this session, attendees will learn:
- About the increasing judicial scrutiny of notice and settlement administration issues
- What the Rule 23 changes mean for individual notice and how it is effectuated
- What the increased focus on claim rates may mean for final approval
