Class Action & Mass Tort
ATLANTA – March 25, 2019 — Epiq, a global leader in the legal services industry, today announced that Michael O’Connor, vice president, and Nicole Hamann, managing director, will speak on a panel titled, “Claims Administration 101: Navigating Your Options,” at the Academy of Court Appointed Masters 2019 Annual Meeting at the Omni Chicago Hotel, on Friday, April 12 at 11:00 a.m. EST.
The Academy of Court Appointed Masters is the only national organization dedicated to furthering the understanding of legal professionals on the role of special masters. Special masters are frequently appointed in class action and mass tort matters to assist with complex claims adjudications, resolving disputes, reviewing appealed claims and overseeing various aspects of the administration process.
O’Connor and Hamann together have more than 40 years of experience working on class action and mass tort settlements. In this session, attendees will learn:
- How to assess case claims administration needs and choose an administrator with the skills and resources to successfully handle the matter
- How to manage class action and mass tort projects efficiently and effectively
- How to using technology to simplify complex administration challenges
“We are excited to present to this outstanding group of professionals for the second year in a row,” said O’Connor. “As the industry leader in claims administration, we are fortunate to work with special masters on a regular basis. The attendees at this meeting oversee some of the most complex and widely-publicized cases in the country. However, the practical reality and logistics of getting millions of claims paid present unique challenges even the most experienced lawyers and special masters don’t fully understand.”
