Class Action & Mass Tort
ATLANTA – April 30, 2019 — Epiq, a global leader in the legal services industry, today announced that Michael O’Connor, vice president, will speak on a panel titled, “The Growing Role of Electronics and Technology in Administering Settlement Programs” at Perrin’s Mass Tort Global Settlement Architecture Conference at the Westin in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, May 2 at 4:15 p.m. EDT.
Perrin Conferences is a leader in hosting large-scale, national litigation conferences and providing the legal profession with continuing legal education programs. Co-chaired by Kenneth R. Feinberg from the Law Offices of Kenneth R. Feinberg and Deborah Greenspan of Blank Rome LLP, the conference promises to bring many of the country’s most prominent voices in effectively resolving mass tort disputes and cutting edge approaches to administering settlement programs.
O’Connor has more than 20 years of experience working on class action and mass tort settlements, both as a trial lawyer and at Epiq. In this session, attendees will learn about the technology behind:
- Building plaintiff inventories for settlement
- Administering settlement programs as a neutral
- Preventing fraud and approaches to paying successful plaintiffs
“It’s exciting to be a part of this conference, chaired by two of the greatest minds in our industry,” said O’Connor. “Speaking as a lawyer, lawyers aren’t always aware of how technology can make their jobs easier and the advantages gained by using experienced administrators to help them execute the terms of their settlement agreements. We hope our panel will provide attendees with insight into maximizing the effectiveness of technology in settlement programs, and to help pay plaintiffs accurately, transparently and timely.”
